Aboriginal heritage experiences

Whether you're a visitor or a local, the Royal Botanic Garden's Aboriginal heritage experiences will immerse you in the rich culture of the traditional owners of the Sydney city area, the Cadigal people and help you see the Garden in a new way.

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

Take a guided tour and taste Aboriginal bush foods! 

There will be plenty of opportunities to ask questions when you take a guided tour. Depending on what’s in season, you’ll also be able to taste some Australian bush foods. Tours depart from the Information Centre at the Garden Shop every Wednesday, Friday and Saturday at 10 am. Click here to learn more and book your place. 

Walk the Cadigal 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.

We would like to acknowledge the Cadigal people of the Eora Nation within Sydney and pay our respect to Elders past, present and future.
