Slow Food Saddleback News

Bring and Share to welcome 2023

Slow Food Saddleback members and friends will get together at Killalea State Park, and enjoy our own well prepared good food after an informative and comfortable walk with members of the Gumaraa Aboriginal Experience.

Our hosts will show us some of the traditions of the area and local bush tucker ingredients.

Killalea is an area of significant importance to the local indigenous people. Killalea has magnificent views, a grassy picnic area and beaches to share and enjoy.

This is a bring it all event. You will need to bring your food, utensils, and drinks – we will provide shade covers, and tables and some chairs. This will cope with drizzly weather too.

For those who are new to our Bring and Share tradition, the idea is to make a biggish plate of food that can be shared. We showcase our skills and local produce. All the food goes on the table and the creators let the rest of us know what they have prepared …it is fun and delicious!

You can do main course or dessert, just remember it is a picnic!!!

There is plenty of parking in the car park next to the Kiosk, where you can purchase extra goodies if required. The Kiosk is run by local indigenous members under the management of Mark Olive a well know chef specialising in bush tucker ingredients.

If the weather is really bad we will have to cancel, but we will do our best and there is plenty of shelter. Ring 0438447326 if it looks too wet to continue.

When:  Sunday 26 February at 11am for the Gumaraa Experience followed by the picnic.
We will commence the experience as close to time as possible.

Where:  Killalea State Park

Cost:  $25 to cover the expenses for the Gumaraa Group

To book: TryBooking

See you at the picnic, it will be good for everyone to catch up in a relaxed atmosphere.  Obviously, children are welcome and free.
