Authentic Aboriginal Art by June Smith

Bush food (referred to as bush tucker in Australia) traditionally refers to any food which is native to Australia and is used as nourishment by the original inhabitants, the Australian Aborigines. For thousands of years Aboriginal people survived living off the land, eating well when food was plentiful & conserving it in times of drought.

Examples of bush tucker include bush tomato, kakadu plum, wattleseed, muntries (native cranberry), macadamia and bunya nuts. The most identifiable bush tucker plant harvested and sold in large-scale commercial quantities is the macadamia nut.

June Smith, born in 1960, is a well-known Aboriginal artist in Santa Teresa, Alice Springs. She is strongly involved in her community and is a respected and strong mother and grandmother.
