Wominjeka (Welcome) to Melbourne.
The Aboriginal Melbourne Tour will allow you to uncover the city's unique aboriginal significance and uncover stories behind some of the city's main attractions.
You will begin at the beautiful Royal Botanic Gardens to discover how the native flora was used by the Koolin nation, traditional owners of the land for food, tools and medicine.
As you then travel to Melbourne's eclectic culinary hotspot, Gertrude Street, you will have the chance to experience these native flavours for yourself. You enjoy an indigenous feast for the senses at Charcoal Lane, a social enterprise restaurant where fine dining with native ingredients is driven by an inspiring project to provide young people, including many Aboriginals with opportunities to excel in hospitality. Your lunch will help to support this very worthwhile program.
A visit to Melbourne Museum's Bunjilaka Aboriginal Cultural Centre will teach you about Australia's first peoples, and finally your day will end at Federation Square, now a striking modern public space but historically, a significant meeting place for the Kulin nation.
Tours depart every Wednesday and Friday. Melbourne hotel pick ups are included.
