One of my favourite activities during our wonderful Survivor trip in 2008 was the Animal Tracks Bushtucker Tour.

Bush foods are very important to aboriginal people. As the seasons change, so does the availability of food within the bush and, therefore, the content of the tour. We gathered all sorts of food stuffs including water lillies, grubs and tubers; we all took part in the gathering of the food. Our guide was a traditional bush aboriginal and knew exactly where to take us to gather our bush tucker.

At the end of our journey through the bush, we had a campfire whilst watching a wonderful sunset and listening to the animals of the bush. We had a wonderful meal including those traditions of billy tea and damper.
