Melbourne botanic garden

I did the Aboriginal heritage walk with Charles which was fascinating. We opened with a smoke ceremony, then a brief tour of plants used by natives, including the tree above with papery bark used for cooking purposes. We finished with lemon myrtle tea. A unique opportunity to learn more about this culture- and perhaps they should market it a lot more as many people I spoke to hadn’t heard about it.
