Native Bunch | Oh Christmas Bush!
Australian Christmas Bush
Christmas has come and gone. Here at Native Bunch we loved using the Australian Christmas bush in our Christmas posies and bunches.
The much loved Christmas bush has always been the subject of Australian artists, musicians, poets and writers. An illustrator was commissioned c1962 to design the Menu cover for the maiden voyage to Australia of the P&O liner Arcardia. Illustrator Strom Gould used Christmas bush, Christmas bells and the Christmas beetle to depict Australia. Menus were sort after as keepsakes by the passengers and were used to promote the destination. A few of these illustrated Menus still exist at the Australian National Maritime Museum.
