Incorporating native bush ingredients such as lemon myrtle, quandong and wattleseed, dishes on offer include the braised pork belly sliders, grilled crocodile and kangaroo mignon. Not to be missed is the outback pizza, topped generously with smoked kangaroo, emu strips, roasted red pepper and bush tomato.

The cocktails are just as interesting: a lemon myrtle martini, a quandong capriocsa and a mint and desert lime mojito.

Indigenous tourism experiences generate an estimated $5.6 billion annually, attracting 14 per cent of international visitors to Australia. Tourism Australia hopes to boost these figures by promoting Aboriginal tourism offerings.

“Our Restaurant Australia campaign is all about people, produce and place and Ayers Rock Resort certainly seems to have ticked all those boxes with their latest Indigenous tourism experience,” said Tourism Australia Managing Direct John O’Sullivan.
