"THE CAFE" at YARRAWARRA Welcomes new managers and an exciting new menu!


Weekdays: 10 am -  2 pm
Weekends: 9 am - 2  pm

Bill (Nulla-Muthubudoo)Speedy and partner Judith Russell have moved to Corindi Beach from Dimboola Victoria to take on the bush tucker cafe at Yarrawarra Aboriginal Cultural Centre. Bill is a Gwamu man from Bollon near Cunnamulla in  SouthWest Queensland.

Bill and Judith are passionate about promoting native foods.  "We are trying to create a menu that is sugar free and promotes the health benefits of eating native products with a focus on ethical native meats such as kangaroo & emu."  We believe that too many of our people suffer from Sugar Diabetes as there is far too much sugar present in our everyday foods.

Bush Tucker PlatterWHAT'S ON THE MENU?

  • Smoked Kangaroo salad
  • Kangaroo Burger
  • Pumpkin & native thyme soup
  • Bush Tucker Pies including Pepperberry Roo Lemon Myrtle Corcodile and quandong (native peach)
  • Lemon myrtle or wattle seed muffins
  • Bush Tucker platter (Selection of Crocodile/Emu/Kangaroo & native Dukkah)
  • Great Coffee and assorted native teas 

They are ambassadors for Outback Pride and use their products in "The Cafe".  Outback Pride supports approximately 3000 Indigenous people in farming and cultivation of native foods.
