In a distant corner of Northern Australia on the coast of the Gulf of Carpentaria Frank Shadforth and his family have lived for over 65 years at Seven Emu Station. Franks father was the first aboriginal to buy a big cattle property, and he left the message for his family to “make sure you look after it, leave everything natural”. And that’s exactly what Frank did. His family have ensured that the ancient landscape and mighty tropical rivers that bound Seven Emu station are as pristine today as they ever have been. And it is at seven Emu Station that some of Australia’s most unique, high quality bush foods can be found. It has been Frank’s passion for many years to replicate the natural process of harvesting bush tucker for the health of the ecosystem, just as his aboriginal ancestors had done in years gone by. Therese from Gourmet Nation has formed a close partnership with Frank and his family to revive the wild harvesting of Australian bush foods using traditional aboriginal knowledge and techniques. We are excited to be able to offer our unique range of top quality, wild harvested bush foods. We specialise in a range of bush teas unique to the Northern Territory. These include Kulbanyi (a variety of Melaleuca), Kurranga (commonly known as dogs balls or Emu Bush), Sandalwood and Wild Lemongrass. We are also Australia's only large-scale producers of paperbark which is used in cooking and imparts a unique smoky flavour.
