Australian Bush Christmas was born on a farm near Byron Bay, in the Northern Rivers region of New South Wales.
We adapt old country-style recipes for the gourmet market, using the nuts and oil from our Macadamias, along with other, premium, Australian produce.
We began by selling our Australian Bush Christmas Cakes at Farmers' Markets in 2000, the year of the Sydney Olympics. It was a sunny time, a happy start, and with so many visitors from all over the world in Australia for the Games, we made a lot of friends who have been loyal customers ever since.
Today, some 20 years on, our cakes are still mixed, baked, decorated and packaged by hand. Unlike most businesses we actually want to stay small. It means we can be directly involved with you, our customers, and therefore very flexible when it comes to fulfilling your needs. (Besides, that's the real fun part for us!)
We have added to our range over the years and now offer the Australian Bush Christmas Pudding, a lighter style of fruit pudding specially created for the hot and sunny Christmas season we enjoy Down Under.
We also make the unique Ginger Lover's Cake, Macadamia Nut Shortbread , and a spicy Savoury Cheese Biscuit that has an addicted following in our own household. We have dark chocolate-coated Florentines, made the old-fashioned way with sliced almonds not cornflakes, and stuffed with cherries and macadamia nuts and Salted Caramel Macadamia Nuts that can turn people into selfish squirrels. (We like to think our food is for sharing but some of our customers disagree!)
Our cakes have been a part of Christmas celebrations held on sunny Australian beaches, on the icy slopes of Mount Everest, under the English Channel and in the shadow of the Pyramids.
We have sent them to every state in Australia and to many countries around the world: including all of the UK and Ireland, the USA, Canada, New Zealand, Indonesia, Singapore, Thailand, Malaysia, Nepal, China, Japan, Chile, Brazil, Italy, Germany, France, Monaco, Spain, Switzerland, South Africa, India, Fiji, Western Samoa, Romania, Latvia, Austria, Sweden, Finland, Denmark, Norway, Egypt, Saudi Arabia, Iraq and the Turk and Caicos Islands.
