Big camels join little 'roos to help Alice boom




As Kangaroo Dundee III is almost ready to hit TV screens world-wide, the family of stars has had a major addition. ERWIN CHLANDA reports.


A star on British TV, ignored by Tourism NT

Alice Springs' own Chris "Brolga" Barns of Kangaroo Dundee fame is delighting an overseas TV audience of 15 million.

The first show, having taken Britain by storm, will soon be running in the USA, and the shooting of a six part sequel is about to start.
It's free publicity for Central Australia upon which promoters, one might have thought, could build a dream campaign.
But it seems the massively funded yet chronically underachieving Tourism NT doesn't want to know Brolga. ERWIN CHLANDA reports.        FULL STORY

Aromas of eucalyptus, acacia, smoke … and grubs






A burger 'n' chips with a difference won the wildfoods/bushfoods
competition final on Sunday. Its creators were Michael La Flamme and
Pamela Kiel, who have been regular competitors since their "Gecko's
Revenge" – a sausage made from feral cat – won people's choice in 2006.

In the intervening years the couple's culinary creations have moved
towards more subtle messages about food in our environment. On Sunday
Michael said their aim was to create an everyday  dish with a taste
like the smell you get when you step off a plane in Alice. At the
moment, he said, that would be eucalyptus, acacia and smoke. KIERAN FINNANE tastes. PHOTOS: Top - Judge Beat Keller musters his courage before tasting a witchetty grub. By Peter Carroll.  At right  - Ronja Moss gives the grubs an oriental touch. By Edan Baxter.
