OUR STORY

Art, culture and bush harvest products are integral to our communities and have strong potential for creating jobs and developing our communities through Indigenous tourism. Ironbark Aboriginal Corporation established Aboriginal Bush Traders in 2008 to support Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people who want to engage in these economic activities in a sustainable way.
