“The spirit of reconciliation and a celebration of regenerative agriculture is key to Australia’s food industry and how it adapts to a changing climate.

We are bringing the leaders and thinkers at the helm of the nation’s native food and sustainability industries together whilst we continue as a community to curate a culture for the integration of ancient foods to people living in the region, Australia and beyond.

The Quandong Festival ventures well beyond quandongs. It’s a celebration of all native Australian plants and foods.”
