Aboriginal Heritage Tour

The Blue Mountains Botanic Garden, Mount Tomah offers an opportunity for visitors to learn about the rich heritage and culture of the Aboriginal people of the region.

Thought to be an impassable mountain range by early Europeans, Mount Tomah and the surrounding Greater Blue Mountains World Heritage Area provided important trade routes for Aboriginal people. With a diverse array of flora and fauna, ample fresh water, rock shelters and views to the coast, it was a safe haven for many local Aboriginal people for thousands of years.

The Aboriginal Heritage Tour, led by an expert Aboriginal guide, provides visitors with a unique opportunity to experience the culture and plant resources of the indigenous people of the Greater Blue Mountains World Heritage Area.
