The Bush Orange is a particular fruit that grows in Atnwengerrp. Once very abundant but now scarce due to over grazing, this species was a stable source of bush tucker for Aboriginals.

The fruit grows on a big tree and is larger than a passionfruit. It is green when unripe and turns yellow in maturity. It is soft inside and is often compared to the flavour of custard apple. The fruit is consumed raw with the tough outer skin discarded or laid out to dry, to be consumed during months when bush tucker is scarce.

The physical creation of this Dreaming is an important part of the bush tucker ceremonies conducted by the Women. Artworks such as ‘Bush Orange’ and ‘Women’s Ceremony’ ensures the continuation of an ancient and rich cultural heritage, while acknowledging the close bond still retained by Charmaine to her country.
