Kakadu Plum Cacao Bliss Balls

We love cooking little home baked goodies for our clients to enjoy on our eco tours or hikes. It's not too often we go home with anything left in the containers as they are usually devoured in minutes of serving.

Most of you know that we have a great bond and deep respect for the traditional owners of this land, and this is just one way we know how to honor Aboriginal culture.

It is our hope that by introducing you to the foods of the bush that you will begin your journey of self discovery into the world of Bushtucker and learn from those whose bond with the earth is second to none.

Our spices and herbs are only sourced through Aboriginal business's around Australia and we encourage you to get on board and support these amazing suppliers.

Kakadu Plum, also known as Gubinge, is  flowering plant in the family Combretaceae, native to Australia, widespread throughout the tropical woodlands from northwestern Australia to eastern Arnhem Land.
