Dreamtime: Indigenous people of Australia hunt and fetch their food from various sources that came from the bush, the land, and the sea. They use Bush Tucker such as Bush Banana, Bush Berries, Bush Plums, etc. as their diet. They also hunt in the wild for wild animals. Men hunt Kangaroo with various hunting tools they have procured from their ancestors and women pick the fruits & vegetables from the bush. Over the years, they have learned various ways of hunting, collecting, and preparing their food.
