Every Friday & Sunday - on hold

Bush Food Afternoon Tea

Join your Aboriginal guide from Shared Knowledge and discover how to identify and collect the bounty of foods available from the surrounding country - all whilst in the stunning and peaceful surrounds of the Royal Botanic Garden Sydney.

As part of your Afternoon Tea experience you'll take a 30 minute tour of the Garden to not only learn how to identify seasonal bush foods but to also gain a deeper understanding of Aboriginal heritage, culture and connection to country with your Aboriginal guide.

This will be followed by a unique and modern take on the traditional high tea utilising seasonal Bush Food ingredients. Indulge in a variety of delicious sweet and savoury bites that will tickle your taste buds whilst relaxing in and around the historic and beautiful sandstone surrounds of Victoria Lodge.

*Important note: A minimum number of 4 bookings is required for this experience to go ahead. If minimum numbers are not reached you will be notified 48 hours prior to your booked session and provided with a refund within 14 days.
