Royal Botanic Garden – Aboriginal Heritage Tour
The Aboriginal Heritage Tour at the Royal Botanic Garden offers a unique opportunity to learn about the diverse history and culture of the Aboriginal people of the Sydney area. Share in a first-hand perspective of the significance of the site on which the Royal Botanic Garden is situated, which is regarded as the ‘first frontier’ between Aboriginal and European societies. A 57 yard (52-metre) interpretive ‘storyline’ tells the Aboriginal history of Sydney from the Dreamtime to the present. The text on the storyline was compiled from a variety of sources including over 40 interviews with local Aboriginal people.
