Bush Tucker or Bush Food is food native to Australia and was present before European colonisation. Australian Aborigines selected food which was available and ate it for nutritional purposes. Bush Tucker plants are used now for jams, chutney and jellies, flavourings (e.g. Lemon Myrtle), spices (e.g. Mountain Pepper), drinks, sauces, colours (e.g. Davidson’s plum).
