The Bush Tucker Garden is situated on the banks of the Lake Fred Tritton. It was created as a joint project involving the Richmond Shire Council, the CDEP (Community Development Employment Program) and the local community.
All plants are native to the region and are labelled with their traditional purposes, helping to promote the educational aspects of indigenous culture.
Gidgee stones and Moonrocks extracted from the local properties complete the garden, showcasing the uniqueness of the region’s landscape and prehistoric past.
The Bush Tucker Garden was a finalist in the Indigenous Category at the 2008 Banksia Environmental Awards.
