“My love of food comes from knowing that it unifies and sustains. And the traditional methods of getting food always meant a time of family bonding.
Foraging native food is a United Nations and First Nations right. The reason [Currie Country] is in the foraging business and why we got into foraging native foods as a family is not for the cheffing community. It's because it is our right.”
— Arabella Douglas,
Currie Country founder

This is a very exciting time with the aim to provide a deeply enriching experience for Currie Country's brilliant 'alchemist' chef creator community of Tweed, Byron, and Gold Coast.
The focus is on creativity, history, Aboriginal lores and systems to influence what chefs bring to their diner, and the Australian palate, combined with principles to create a thriving cooperative community between Aboriginal people, local communities, and curated dining experience which speaks to nuance and beauty of Native Foods.
'We are creating a knowledge base that will enhance the use of Native Foods and bring a new awareness of texture and taste to tables'.
We are setting the standard with ethical practices, between First Nations foraging rights, paying 'black tax' to other sovereign nations in distribution, and elevating hand foraged food for the exquisite dining experience.
Currie Country is leading educating, and inspiring our local Chefs to ensure Aboriginal knowledge systems are at the heart of understanding, practice principles.
