W is for the Witchetty Grub – a creepy crawly of the outback. This squirming grub makes its home in tree roots found predominantly in the Northern Territory but also in parts of South Australia and Western Australia. Grubs aren’t usually at the top of many menus, but are recognised as an important bush tucker item by Indigenous Australians. Aboriginal communities have also been known to grind the grubs and use the paste to help heal injuries, burns and other wounds. So, the next time someone tells you ‘grub’s up!’ – think twice about what might be on the menu!
