Australian artist Belinda Mason's work has focused on taboo social issues that explore the very personal and sometimes difficult subjects of grief, body image, identity and family.

"We cannot argue when someone says, "I feel" - it is not our right.  It is part of our own journey to learn empathy rather than compassion.  Our own reaction exposes us to ourselves, and our ability to listen when someone lays their naked soul in our path."  Belinda Mason 2001

For more than 17 years Mason's has conceptualized, produced and presented high quality socio-cultural engaged art exhibitions, television & radio programs, online books, websites and events for National and International audiences. 

Mason's exhibition of photographs titled Intimate Encounters concerning sexuality and disability, toured to every metropolitan and key regional city throughout Australia and nine international cities including London, Barcelona, New York, Toronto and Auckland from 2001 to 2014.

 "THE CAFE" at YARRAWARRA Welcomes new managers and an exciting new menu!

       NOW OPEN       

 Weekdays  10 am - 3 pm    

 Weekends    9 am - 3 pm

Bill (Nulla-Muthubudoo)Speedy and partner Judith Russell have moved to Corindi Beach from Dimboola Victoria to take on the bush tucker cafe at Yarrawarra Aboriginal Cultural Centre. Bill is a Gwamu man from Bollon near Cunnamulla in  SouthWest Queensland.

Bill and Judith are passionate about promoting native foods.  "We are trying to create a menu that is sugar free and promotes the health benefits of eating native products with a focus on ethical native meats such as kangaroo & emu."  We believe that too many of our people suffer from Sugar Diabetes as there is far too much sugar present in our everyday foods.

WHAT'S ON THE MENU?

  • Smoked Kangaroo salad
  • Kangaroo Burger
  • Pumpkin & native thyme soup
  • Bush Tucker Pies including Pepperberry Roo Lemon Myrtle Corcodile and quandong (native peach)
  • Lemon myrtle or wattle seed muffins
  • Bush Tucker platter (Selection of Crocodile/Emu/Kangaroo & native Dukkah)
  • Great Coffee and assorted native teas 
They are ambassadors for Outback Pride and use their products in "The Cafe".  Outback Pride supports approximately 3000 Indigenous people in farming and cultivation of native foods.
