A Wardandi Bibbulmun woman whose traditional Aboriginal country is the Margaret River, Busselton area. Dale has been a Swan Valley local since 1998, when she opened the Maalinup Gallery with her brother Lyall, offering authentic Aboriginal art, gifts and souvenirs. The Experiences part of the business has steadily grown as customers seek more knowledge about Aboriginal culture and life.

Having spent many years gathering knowledge from her elders and other sources, Dale is often called on to talk about bush food, which she loves presenting and encouraging people to incorporate into their everyday cooking.

She is passionate about education and works extensively with students of all ages. “Educating the world about Australian native edibles is an important part of my cultural journey. Being part of the local tourism community gives context. I represent the Swan Valley region at every chance; travelling as far as Turin, Italy with the Swan Valley and Eastern Region Slow Food Convivium to Terra Madre to cook at Australia on a Plate for 100 people, and present a Bushtucker Masterclass which was a wonderful opportunity,” said Dale. I was also part of the Swan Valley contingent which launched the Swan Valley Trails in Singapore in 2019. My trail is "Bushtucker and Beyond".

Dale's previous background is in buying, merchandising and marketing in department store groups in the UK and Australia. She also has experience in accommodation, functions and catering.
