Aboriginal Heritage Walk

Royal Botanic Gardens Victoria at Melbourne Gardens, located just a short walk from the city centre, is a significant cultural site for the local Koolin people. Through our Aboriginal Heritage Walk, you can journey into their ancestral lands and explore their rich and thriving culture.

With your Aboriginal guide you will experience a traditional smoking ceremony and discover traditional uses of plants for food, tools and medicine. Develop an understanding of, and respect for, the customs and heritage of the local Boon Wurrung and Woiwurrung people.
