Ben Tyler and Kylie-Lee Bradford (Kakadu Kitchen)

Kakadu Kitchen is all about culture, community and sustainability.

Ben Tyler and Kylie-Lee Bradford launched the concept at last year’s festival, impressing diners with tongue-tingling bush food creations like crispy cat eel tails, saltbush damper and water yam sushi.

The duo are cooking up some exciting flavour combinations for 2018 and are thrilled to be sharing their knowledge of bush foods and traditional techniques with guests again this year.
