New indigenous food experience on the Larapinta proves a huge hit with World Expeditions walkers

June 30, 2017 Tour Operator No Comments Email Email

A bush tucker experience is the newest experience on offer on the Larapinta Trail and World Expeditions walkers are embracing the chance to learn about – and taste – delicious bush tucker food. 

The bush tucker food is prepared by Raylene Brown, the co-founder and owner of an Alice Springs catering company, Kungkas Can Cook, which specialises in native foods collected straight from country.

According to World Expeditions Operations Manager, Kirke Ranson, Raylene’s knowledge of the local plants and foods inspires people to learn more about the local flora and customs and is a great introduction to being on the iconic Larapinta Trail.

“Raylene developed her interest in bush food during her nomadic childhood, when she lived all over the Territory from Wave Hill to Katherine, Tennant Creek to Adelaide River,” Kirke said.  “Along the way, she developed an appreciation for bush tucker, and she shares her passion with trekkers, who are really enjoying foods like wattle seed damper, kangaroo fillet, bush tomato relish and bush dukkuh.”

“World Expeditions clients also participate in a “Welcome to Country” at Angkerle Atwatye (Standley Chasm), where a member of the local traditional owners formally welcomes them,” Kirke says.  “It can be a moving experience for many”.

These experiences are part of World Expeditions’ most popular trek, the 6 day Classic Larapinta Trek in Comfort, during which walkers carry only a daypack and stay at the exclusive World Expeditions’ permanent campsites.

Other itineraries include the 6 day Larapinta Challenger Trek, which takes in some of the toughest sections along the Larapinta, the 6 day Art Expedition Larapinta, the 6 day Women’s Classic Larapinta Trek in Comfort and the 3 day Larapinta Experience in Comfort.
