On the 20th of January 2022 takara nipaluna and Palawa kipli partnered to offer an exclusive bush foods walk around piyura kitina – Risdon Cove.
Nunami and Kitana took a group for a kipli takara – food walk – on this special piece of Aboriginal owned land to hear about the history of the area and learn about the native bush foods in season on the property.
The group got to taste those native foods with a unique lunch of native flavours, fully catered by palawa kipli – the Tasmanian Aboriginal catering company.
This is a first time collaboration between two Aboriginal owned and operated businesses.
This collaboration allowed visitors to access areas of private Aboriginal land and was met with great responses.
The Tourism Industry Council Tasmania representatives said this
An amazing way to soak in a truly spectacular summer day. We were privileged this morning to join a group of locals and visitors for a walking tour and lunch at piyura kitina (Risdon Cove). An initative of the Tasmanian Aboriginal Centre and two emerging palawa enterprises – palawa kipli and takara nipaluna. We discovered the history, conservation and management of this most important of sites, learned about the bush kitchen of native berries and seeds that has supported thousands of generations of Tasmanian Aboriginal people, before feasting on a lunch showcasing traditional foods.
One of the better days at the office! Keep an eye on the above [businesses] facebook pages for details of future tours and other cultural experiences. Don’t miss out on the next opportunity!
The growth of palawa cultural tourism enterprises is going to be one of the defining stories of Tasmanian Tourism experiences over the next few yearshttps://www.facebook.com/tictasmania/
