About Us

Trundle Bush Tucker Day Inc’s primary function is to host a one day festival in September, The Trundle Bush Tucker Day. This festival is now in its 29th consecutive year and attracts over 1000 visitors who enjoy live music throughout the day as well as the bush tucker cooking competition, bush games and cooking demonstrations, while the Trundle community enjoys the chance to showcase its history and culture.

Our festival is a not for profit community event and all profits go back into the local community. The committee consists of 10 core members, while in the lead up to the event this number can swell to over 50 volunteers who help to set up and coordinate the event, including manning the gate, selling merchandise or facilitating the free bush tucker and much  much more. All members are volunteers. The Trundle Bush Tucker relies on the support from our local businesses, organizations and sponsors, without their help this event would not be possible.

The Trundle Bush Tucker Day is structured in a unique way to involve our local community groups, if they help out on the day, we give them a donation the following year, so that any money raised on the day is donated to local community groups that assist with the running of the event. The money is awarded on Australia Day and on average the Trundle Bush Tucker Day donates $9000.00 to $11,000.00 a year.  At the 2015 Trundle Australia Day Presentation, Trundle Bush Tucker Day distributed donations to Trundle Central School SRC, CWA Trundle Branch, Trundle R.L.F Club, Trundle Main Street Rejuvenation Project, Trundle Pony Club, Trundle Men’s Shed, CTC Trundle, Trundle Red Cross, St Patrick’s P & F, Trundle Central School P & C, Sunshine Club Trundle, Trundle Amateur Swimming Club, Trundle Pre-School Committee, Condobolin Lodge, Trundle Hospital Auxiliary, Trundle Welfare Community Service Association, Can Assist – Parkes Branch and the Parkinson’s Association – Parkes Branch.
