Aboriginal Experiences

The Royal Botanic Garden Sydney will immerse you in the rich Aboriginal culture of the traditional owners of the Sydney city area, the Gadigal and help you see the Garden in a new and exciting way.

Discover the history of Warrane (the Gadigal name for Sydney Cove – Circular Quay) and learn about the ways the plants in the Garden are used by the Gadigal.

Walk the Gadigal storyline 

If you'd like to learn about the history of this place at your own pace, walk the 50 metre storyline at Cadi Jam Ora: First Encounters + First Farm.

Want a deeper experience? Choose from our range of Aboriginal tours, each offering a unique experience through the Royal Botanic Garden Sydney.
