To celebrate World Food Day, we invite you to join us at a special tour of the UQ Bush food garden followed by morning tea hosted by Indigenous chef, Dale Chapman.
The new bush food garden was planted in 2014 and showcases some of the unique flavours and medicinal properties of plants from South East Queensland.
Engage all your senses of sight, sound, taste, and smell! The morning tea is designed so attendees can be made aware of the unique array of flavours and textures of bush tucker and how easy it is today to incorporate in our daily lives.

Prepared food items will include:
