Lo­cated on Australia’s Fraser Is­land, the world’s largest sand is­land, King­fisher Bay Re­sort’s award-win­ning Se­abelle restau­rant has launched a new food ex­pe­ri­ence. In this tast­ing tour, guests en­joy the ed­u­ca­tional ex­pe­ri­ence of tast­ing Aus­tralian bush food (aka bush tucker) such as nuts, berries and plants while learn­ing how the indige­nous Butchulla peo­ple used them in daily life on the is­land. One lo­cal fruit, the lemon aspen, is full of elec­trolytes and was tra­di­tion­ally used by Abo­rig­ines for en­hanced fo­cus on long jour­neys. Se­abelle’s award-win­ning chefs use this tangy lemon aspen to add flavour to yo­ghurt, pea purée, salad dress­ing and de­con­structed tarts. In ad­di­tion to the taste tour of bush food, guests can also ex­pe­ri­ence the ‘Taste of Se­abelle’ a five­course tast­ing menu fea­tur­ing croc­o­dile salad and tea tree smoked kan­ga­roo.
