Toowoomba burger honours region’s First Nations people

A TOOWOOMBA restaurant has launched a new burger that pays tribute to the region’s First Nations culture, as part of the Carnival of Flowers’ #TReats campaign.

Phat Burgers this week announced the Gummingurru #TReat, a Yakajirri (bush tomato)-rubbed brisket burger with riberry chutney, onion rings, Warrigal greens on a ciabatta bun, served with locally grown kumera wedges.

Restaurant co-owner Richard Steers said the dish was made in collaboration with the Jarowair people.

It is named after Gummingurru, a 6000-year-old aboriginal ceremonial site spread across nearly five hectares of open, flat land adjacent to the Condamine River.

The site has rings of rocks and other totems significant to the many tribes who would frequent the ceremonial site and is believed to be the only one of its kind still in existence.

“Phat Burgers has created the Gummingurru personally with the local Jarowair people as a tribute to their local aboriginal culture,” Mr Steers said.

“By using local bush tucker ingredients, it means everyone can sample some of the local flavours in our region that they probably didn’t know they could eat.”
