from $285 per adult

Uluru Feastival is a Indigenous culinary event celebrating Australia’s native flavours. This is a feast that will tantalise all the senses and open your heart and palate to Indigenous culture and bush tucker flavours.

‘Bush tucker’ is the Australian term for the huge variety of native herbs, spices, fruits, seeds, insects and wildlife that Indigenous Australians have been eating for tens of thousands of years. To most non-Indigenous people, the plants are a mystery and the ancient cooking methods unconventional. This event brings these ingredients into everyday cooking, incorporating ancient flavours into mouth-watering modern cuisine.

Experience a signature masterclass and a special 'Sounds of Silence' dinner under the outback night sky with a three-course tasting menu with Ambassador and Indigenous celebrity chef Mark Olive. A traditional Bundjalung man, Mark's played a huge role in shaping ‘modern Australian’ cuisine with his passion for native ingredients and technical background in European cookery.

During your weekend you'll also join a free Bush Food Experience and learn about native Australian ingredients, while at the Bush Yarn, a storyteller talks about the spears, clubs and boomerangs of a hunter. Then join one of the free daily Garden Walks and gain insight into the gatherers' way as you discover how Indigenous people traditionally lived by using the bush for food and medicine.
