Royal Botanic Gardens Melbourne
At 11am every Tuesday to Friday, and the first Sunday of the month, the staff at the Royal Botanic Gardens Melbourne run a 1.5- hour Aboriginal Heritage Walk, introducing visitors to the Kulin people and their culture. With a particular focus on plants, and their medicinal, food and tool uses, this walk also includes a traditional smoking ceremony that wards off bad spirits. Attendees must meet at the visitor centre at Observatory Gate.
