Having just come back from a short holiday on the Sunshine coast in Queensland I was on a mission to find a Lemon Myrtle tree to plant in my garden.

One reason is due to the wonderful smelling leaves. Have you ever crushed the leaves? They smell like honey and eucalyptus lozenges. They are also a good mozzie deterrent and great for making your every own Lemon Myrtle tea.

Kuranga native nursery is located at the foothills of the Dandenong ranges in Mount Evelyn. What a great find, not only is it a native nursery but also home to Paperbark cafe. So of course we had to stop here and have lunch. If the weather is mil, I always go for a salad or a warm pumpkin soup. My partner decided to try out their burgers and he absolutely loved it.

The cafe is part of an architecturally designed building made from recycled wharf timbers from Sydney Harbour. The gift shop is located next door to the cafe in the same building and has a great range of unique bush foods, body products, beautiful homewares, books, kitchen wares and more.

We brought some macadamia dukka, emerald green tea towels and of course what we had come for, the Lemon Myrtle plant which I had to squeeze into my mini. Thankfully it survived the trip home!

A great day trip just out of Melbourne, the native nursery is set in a beautiful location with great food and cakes - a perfect casual setting. I recommend to book in advance if you are planning a group for lunch as it can get very busy. A little quieter in the afternoon. Best of all they are open 7 days a week! So what are you waiting for!

Your Comment
Defnitely a good place to visdit. Native plants are definitely advantageous in our gardens, not only because they look great but because they aid in water conservation, but because they attract native birdlife.
