The Kuronga Nursery is THE nursery for native Australian plants.

The staff are friendly and incredibly knowledgable about how to grow, transplant, harvest and propagate native plants. There is even a Bush Foods table with a selection of indigenous edible plants, such as finger limes and native berry plants, that can grow well in any home garden.

The highlight of the nursery is the Paperbark Cafe. Looking out onto the nursery grounds, the cafe offers a wide array of classic and modern Australian dishes with native flavours. The chicken and macadamia tart gets washed down well with a mild but refreshing Lemon Myrtle tea.

The shop is also an inspiring stop with an array of creative homeware and edible native flavourings. Open 7 days a week from 8.30am to 5.00pm, Kuronga is located in the leafy neighbourhood of Mount Evelyn.

Seemingly tucked away in the distant mountains, this was only a 40 minute drive from the CBD. Definitely a worthy trip for lunch and a leisurely afternoon stroll full of interesting plant plans.
