Hello, I’m Aunty Dale...

I am an Indigenous woman born in Dirranbandi in south west Queensland on Yuwaalaraay and Kooma tribal lands. I have lived on Gubbi Gubbi land, known as the Sunshine Coast, since 1976. 'Wunya' means welcome in Gubbi Gubbi / Kabi Kabi and I use it because I live, work and play on this beautiful country.

My totems are the emu which was passed to me through my grandfather's family and the possum passed through my grandmother’s family.  

20 years ago I formed this business with a dream that is fuelled by my deep cultural pride - to achieve true equality for all Australians. 

I believe that it is through sharing delicious Australian native foods, yarning and learning about traditional knowledge that honours our past and builds respect and joy into our future. My Dilly Bag creates a comfortable environment where Indigenous and non-indigenous people can learn from and about each other.
