This guided walk is to be held in the morning and afternoon on Friday, 7 November. Participants will explore the Kulin Nation's rich and thriving culture; including experiencing a traditional smoking ceremony and discovering traditional uses of plants for food, tools and medicine. The tour finishes with a refreshing cup of lemon myrtle tea.

The Kulin nation is an alliance of five Indigenous Australian nations in Central Victoria, Australia. When Europeans first settled the Port Phillip region it was already occupied by the Kulin nations of people who spoke a related language. Traditionally, the Kulin people lived as hunters and gatherers for many generations.

This tour is presented by Indigenous guides who provide a unique insight into the history of both the Royal Botanical Gardens and its traditional owners.

The tour guides really go out of their way to get participants involved. They are happy to answer questions along the way and at the start of the tour the guide selects a few participants to help lead the group.

The Aboriginal Heritage Walk is a favourite with children (children must be over 5 to participate) and adults, but visitors to Melbourne will also benefit from this practical way of learning about our Indigenous heritage.

See look at plants and the gardens in a whole new way as you see the land through the eyes of your Aboriginal guide.

The walk is normally priced at $25 per adult so take up this opportunity due to the Melbourne BioBliz and register here. Then simply turn up at the Visitors Centre, Observatory Gate, Royal Botanic Gardens Melbourne your chosen time this Friday to meet your guide.
