Thanks guys. Spectacular products, better service what else can I say... but thank you 🙏🏼
I had read reviews about this Wattleseed & Pepperberry Chai Tea and was keen to give it a try. What I didn't expect was for it to be my absolute favourite and to top all the other teas I have in the cupboard by tenfold! I CANNOT RECOMMEND THIS TEA HIGH ENOUGH!! Thank you Melbourne Bushfood for such a great tea mix!
Plant arrived in good condition. Very happy with purchase.
All planted and looking forward to growing this plant and producing fruit. The first time in trying a native finger lime so keen to add to my collection.
I contacted the team as I was unable to locate the item I wanted (a gift certificate). I received a response as soon business hours commenced and they were able to create exactly what I needed! Communication was so prompt, so helpful and so easy.
Beautifully packaged and quick delivery!
Came very quickly, it's been in the ground for about 2 weeks now and still going strong.
This chocolate has everything; heaps of flavour, crunch and velvety yumminess. This was my first time trying a product from Melbourne Bushfood and it didn't disappoint. I will definitely be buying more.
Great and fast service. I love all the spices and chocolates that I ordered. Looking forward to trying out other products from this site.
Safely packed healthy plant!
I am giving them to a friend- they are perfect thank you ☺️
Quick delivery, tasteful packaging - great idea for Christmas presents. Something most people haven’t tried and need to.

The plants arrived quickly and were well packed. Have planted and looking forward to trying. Excited to have found a place with many native edibles!
What is Bushfood?
Bushfood is any native ingredient found in Australia. And unlike ingredients you might be familiar with, bushfoods have been used for millenia by Aboriginal and Torres Straight Islander people who developed a deep connection and understanding of the land. This deep, cultural knowledge is called Indigenous Ecological Knowledge.
our harvesters + growers
The Origins of Your Bushfood
To grow the plants that eventually become bushfood, we work exclusively with Indigenous Communities, Wild Harvesters, and Small Farmers who produce all of our raw ingredients.
With a range of leaves, grains, seeds, nuts, and fruit available, most modern machinery doesn't suit native bushfoods. That's why most are hand harvested, and hand dried into what you receive.
After we have worked with our producers, we prepare them to be given to you straight to your home. Bushfood are delicious, nutritious, and make incredible and unique gifts.
