Bush Tucker trials tonight to celebrate Australia Day in Bournemouth

Bournemouth Echo: Bush tucker trial tonight for Australia day Bush tucker trial tonight for Australia day

AUSTRALIA day is being celebrated in style this weekend with a bush tucker trial tonight.

Bournemouth’s only Australian themed bar Walkabout saw more than 1,300 revellers on Saturday to enjoy a party complete with flags and face painting.

Today, hundreds are expected to flock to the Christchurch Road bar to take part in a Bush Tucker trial tonight – similar the antics shown on ITV’s I’m a celebrity.... Get me out of here.

Contestants will be challenged to eat various creatures including crickets and an Ox tongue.

Deputy manager Jamie Fox said the Australian staff had been given the day off today to come and celebrate.

Are the creatures especially bred for the amusement of a bunch of drunks?

For a more authentic 'Australia day' experience, why don't we send all the criminals on the borough to walkabout?
