Aboriginal Heritage Tours


Join one of our Aboriginal Education Officers for a journey of discovery. Uncover the Royal Botanic Garden's rich Aboriginal heritage, by exploring plant uses, culture, artefacts, and taste some bush foods. Learn the richly diverse history and culture of the Aboriginal people of the Sydney region with an Aboriginal guide in the heart of the city. An important ceremonial site for many of the Sydney Aboriginal clans and home to the Cadigal clan. Wogganmagule (Farm Cove) and its surrounds offered an impressive and carefree existence. With a diverse array of bush foods, ample fresh water and a plentiful supply of seafood from the harbour, it was paradise for the local Aboriginal people for thousands of years.
