The Aboriginal Heritage Walk offers a rich and vibrant cultural experience.The Aboriginal Heritage Walk is one of the most popular tours at Royal Botanic Gardens Melbourne. Indigenous guides provide a unique insight into the history of both the Gardens and its traditional owners. The tour includes a traditional smoking ceremony, a guided walk through important areas of the Gardens, discussion about the traditional uses for food, tools and medicine, and finishes with a refreshing cup of lemon myrtle tea. The tour guides really go out of their way to get participants involved. They are happy to answer questions along the way and at the start of the tour the guide selects a few participants to help lead the group. The Aboriginal Heritage Walk is a favourite with children and adults alike, with many school groups taking part in the tour as a practical way of learning about our Indigenous heritage. This casual but informative walk will make you look at plants in a whole new way as you see the land through the eyes of your Aboriginal guide.
