10:00am to 11:30am Friday 18 August 2017 (Weekly event)
Discover the rich Aboriginal heritage of Sydney with an Aboriginal guide in the heart of the city.
Located in a spectacular harbourside setting , the Royal Botanic Garden Sydney is one of Sydney’s most treasured and iconic destinations.
On the traditional land of the Cadigal people, the land now occupied by the Garden is the site where the modern transformation of the Australian continent began and can be regarded as the ‘first frontier’ between Aboriginal and European societies.
Join an experienced Aboriginal guide on a 1.5 hour walking tour of the Garden which highlights the significance of the site to Aboriginal people, as well as the rich heritage and culture of Aboriginal people of the Sydney region. Learn about traditional Aboriginal uses for the Garden’s variety of native trees and plants including medicine, tools and food (bush tucker).
Tours run every Wednesday, Friday and Saturday at 10 am, excluding public holidays.
