Authentic Aboriginal Art & Bush Tucker


Aboriginal Chef, Dale Chapman of the Dilly Bag and Aboriginal Artist, Michael Connolly of Dreamtime Kullilla-Art have finally had their "dreamtime"; realized with the opening of their shop -the Dilly Bag Dreamtime Place situated in the heart of Eumundi [in the Post Office building- 71a Memorial Drive, Eumundi]. Dale has been operating her Native Bush Tucker business around the Sunshine Coast region and Michael has been selling his artworks from many of the Brisbane markets for many years. The union between these 2 commenced 3 years ago. Michael was attempting to expand his range of products to include a range of native bush tucker products and started the quest to look for an indigenous person who did bush tucker. To his surprise he found only 1 Dale Chapman and she only lived just up the road in Pomona. They met, they talked and the rest is now history. Bush Tucker is such an integral part of the Aboriginal Culture that it was the perfect union for these two very focused and dedicated Indigenous business operators.
