RECIEVING national recognition in the third edition of Tourism Australia’s National Indigenous Tourism Product Manual is Lismore’s very own GunnaWannaBe Cafe, Gallery and Learning Centre.

GunnaWannaBe owners Thelma James and Mick Roberts said they were proud of their achievement.

GunnaWannaBe is delighted to be included in this national manual which will help promote Aboriginal heritage and cultural tourism across Australia, said Ms James.

The Union Street cafe specialises in food made from native Australian herbs and spices.

While customers are enjoying their meal they can take in the Aboriginal art works which adorn the cafe, some painted with ochres dug up from around the region.

GunnaWannaBe also educates school groups about Aboriginal culture.
