Penola Coonawarra Arts Festival 2016

CobbCo-PCAF-HomepageSlider

COBB & CO, RIDDOCH STREET

Outback Pride at Cobb & Co Penola offered a series of tasting experiences for all ages, designed to celebrate indigenous culture and to discover the distinctive flavours of Australian native foods.

Your cultural guide to these unique foods was Gwamu man Bill Speedy.  Bill grew up in outback Queensland and spent many years in the bush with his grandfather, who passed on traditional Indigenous methods of tracking, hunting and bush survival.  Since his outdoor childhood, "Nullabill" has spent many years in the tourism industry, sharing his knowledge and introducing numerous visitors to the ancient culture of Australia's First Peoples.

The Festival was a wonderful success, with many enjoying the indigenous education, activities and fantastic spread of Outback Pride native foods at Cobb & Co Penola. Thank you to all who were able to join us!
