Bush Tukka Guide


Samantha Martin, a descendant of the Kija and Jaru, from the east Kimberley region of Western Australia, has a familial history of traditional hunting and gathering.

In her comprehensive 'Bush Tukka Guide', she shares her encyclopaedic knowledge on the topic. Divided into three sections, the book covers plant-life, animals, and recipes for incorporating bush tukka into the home kitchen.

Discover bush foods like billygoat plums and mountain bush pepper in the wild, and find out why Aboriginal people ate magpie geese and honey ants.

Whip up delectable dishes like bunya nut pesto, lemon myrtle slow-cooked kangaroo, and caramelised cluster figs with ice-cream.

Known as the 'Bush Tukka Woman', her four-part documentary, My Bush Tukka Adventures with Samantha Martin has been screened on SBS/NITV (National Indigenous TV station)
