Thank you so much Sharon, Kirralaa, Maliyan, Harley and family for connecting delicious food, powerful culture and wonderful people together. Really appreciate all the heart, soul and energy invested into preparing and sharing the meal and cultural experience.

It was a special evening weaving stories, delicious food (and drinks!) and culture. Knowing the damper is part of the important work of reviving native grains with Uncle Bruce and the use of old ways with the modern fine dining twist (like your scrumptious roo) is exciting to be part of. It has inspired me to try and share more conversation around using native foods and herbs at school with the kids.

The campfire was perfect to gather around to hear from each member of your family sharing their stories, hopes and dreams. Thank you Maliyan for sharing the beautiful sounds of the yidaki and to Sharon and Kirralaa for sharing song, dance and a smoking ceremony. It has been such an honour to share such an incredible dining and cultural experience. I hope everyone gets to experience this to connect, understand and celebrate 60,000+ years of continued excellence.

With much gratitude,

Mitch and I attended the Warakirri Dining Experience and it was truely amazing! The atmosphere, the food the drink, the whole shabang is a experoence that everyone should try. Sharon has a wealth of knowledge and is an exceptional chef! I highly recommend booking in for the next Dining Experience.

Thank you Warakirri for the most memorable evening. We felt as though we were coming into your home for dinner. And what a dinner it was. For those that think indigenous food can’t be done as fine dining - you’re in for van eye opening experience. The emu was a favourite as was the crocodile. But the dessert was next level!

But more then the food, we will remember the stories that Sharon shared. It was a very cold night (though the attentive staff took care of this with blankets, heaters, a fire pit - oh, and plenty of Mudgee wine) but we left feeling full of warmth.

We were intrigued by the idea of an Indigenous Degustation and booked in for the night before Mother’s Day. We were not disappointed.

Sitting around a lovely fire on a very cold night sipping on a wonderful mocktail to the haunting sound of a digeredoo we began the evening with stories from Sharon about her life, inspiration and what being indigenous means to her. The atmosphere created was very special and certainly enhanced the experience. We then went and sat at a communal table to enjoy our meal starting with damper followed by courses of oysters, barramundi, crocodile and emu (my favourite) finished by a wattleseed affogata, There was also lovely wine, gin and liquers for those who were drinking and more mocktails for those that weren’t.

After dinner it was back to the fire for some more storytelling. To top the night off Sharon presented all the mothers with gifts for Mothers Day - a delightful touch.

What a fabulous night. We enjoyed it so much we went there for breakfast the next morning.

Great food and atmosphere, lovely staff and a very interesting venue. What more could you ask for?
