Food in Australia (Stage 5)

By Request

Join our First Nations Educators to explore the timeline of Food in Australia!


ACTIVITY OUTLINE:

Explore the timeline of food in Australia from Aboriginal culture pre-1788 to the First Farm, through to the presence of many different cultural groups settling in Australia, and how this has led to our cuisine becoming an exciting fusion of bush food ingredients and flavours. Students will also explore the recent popularity of bush foods and how the First Nations diet has evolved as a result of colonisation.

Students will:

-Watch an easy-to-make damper session that can be replicated in the classroom or at home. Damper has been an important staple of Aboriginal people’s diets both traditionally and through colonisation.
-Explore the different types of traditional foods eaten by Aboriginal people, including the methods of collection and processing as well as how the Aboriginal diet was impacted by location.
-Learn traditional and contemporary methods of cooking and the uses of native bush foods by Aboriginal people.
-Learn how traditional bush foods are now incorporated into contemporary, modern cuisine.
