Crown Casino celebrates NAIDOC with Mark Olive

During this year’s NAIDOC Week, Mark Olive was invited to design a specialised indigenous themed menu for all employees at Crown Melbourne, where their staff restaurant consistently delivers over 3500 meals a day.

Crown Limited (which includes Crown Melbourne and Burswood Casino in Perth) had previously and successfully committed to provide career opportunities for Aboriginal people within the company.

During NAIDOC 2010, Crown’s NAIDOC committee worked together with their Business Units to celebrate these achievements.

Mark’s seven-day lunch/dinner menu creations received great feedback from staff, many of whom were introduced to this kind of cuisine for the first time. Some employees were also lucky to meet Mark on the first day of the menu’s launch, and win autographed copies of his Outback Cafe cookbook.
