One of the most popular aspects of Mahbilil is the preparation and cooking of local bushfoods. Get hands on with prepping Magpie Goose and learn from the locals as to best handle and cook it. Watch the building of the traditional Gungarre ground oven and sample local buffalo and veges after many hours of slow cooking. Help cook Barramundi and Magpie Goose on the coals and try the mouth-watering results. Plenty to learn and plenty to eat!
Then there is the hotly contested Magpie Goose cooking competition. Locals try their hand and flex their MasterChef muscles in using the Goose in many different ways to wow the judges. You get to try the dishes and vote on the Peoples Choice award.
