Celebrity Treatment from Scenic Tours
Released on: November 11, 2011, 6:31 pm
‘Bush Tucker Trial’ now on the menu for Scenic Tours’ guests
on Grand Australia Tour
An expedition into the depths of an Australian rainforest never fails to work up a
healthy appetite, and intrepid guests of Scenic Tours can now look forward to the
mouth-watering prospect of crumbed native giant cockroach, followed by a soupcon of
battered stick insect, which invigorates the palette in readiness for the delicate
taste of pan fried long horn beetle larvae – how exquisite.
In the spirit of the television series ‘I’m a celebrity, get me out of here’, which
is soon to return to British screens, guests on Scenic Tours’ Grand Australia tours can now experience their
very own bush tucker trial, although there is no need for concern, as the trial is
optional, and receiving an evening meal will not depend on completing the trial!
This new and tasteful experience is presented to Scenic Tours guests during their
stay at the fantastic Thala Beach Eco-Lodge, which is set in a tropical rainforest
in North Queensland, near to where ’I’m a Celebrity, get me out of here’ is filmed.
And nor will Scenic Tours expect its guests to sleep on camp beds with just the
rainforest canopy as a roof, as accommodation will be provided by the luxury
bungalows at Thala Beach, which are set within the rain forest, yet offer panoramic
views over the beach and Pacific Ocean.
The bush tucker trial acts as a prelude to the special ‘Australiana’ dinner, which
has been conceived exclusively for guests of Scenic Tours. The ‘Australiana’ menu
remains true to the indigenous wildlife, while featuring dishes that should be
altogether more palatable to Western visitors. A starter of Carpaccio of green ant
gravlax with Hass avocado and Mareeba tomato salsa, followed by Bush spiced kangaroo
loin on chickpea mash with sticky onion jus gives bush tucker a sophisticated,
The Bush Tucker trial is an illustration of how Scenic Tours continually adds
exciting and memorable activities to its guided tours, and how Scenic Tours guests
do not just see destinations from their seat on a coach, but that every opportunity
is presented to guests to submerge themselves in local culture and customs as much
as they wish.
