Guests will be able to experience flavours such as Lemon Myrtle, Kakadu Plum, Bush Tomato, Quandong and Wattleseed in a range of menu items designed to highlight these unique Australian flavours.  
“By adding ingredients that have been used in Indigenous cuisine for thousands of years, our team of Executive Chefs joined forces to create a selection of contemporary dishes infused with Indigenous flavours,” said Ray Stone, of travel agency Voyages.

Dishes include:

 

  • Braised Pork Belly Sliders: Kakadu plum chili sauce, cucumber and macadamia nut salad
  • Outback Pizza: Smoked kangaroo, emu strips, mushroom, onion, roast red pepper, bush tomato
  • Grilled Crocodile: Crocodile Tail dusted with bush dukkha served with spinach salad and lemon myrtle and mango dressing
  • Kangaroo Mignon:Grilled Kangaroo Mignon with mountain pepper, seasonal vegetables, potato gallette and bush tomato jus.

    A range of Bush Tucker cocktails has been developed by the resort’s mixologist Ty Bennett, including a Lemon Myrtle Martini, a Quandong Capriocsa and Native Mint and Desert Lime Mojito.
    Tourism Australia managing director John O’Sullivan says that Indigenous experiences and now food and wine are are increasingly important to Australia’s international tourism offering.

    Our Restaurant Australia campaign is all about people, produce and place and Ayers Rock Resort certainly seems to have ticked all those boxes with their latest Indigenous tourism experience,” he says.
