Dive Deep into the Botanic Gardens

Come on a sacred journey to meet and connect with the oldest living culture on earth. This highly exclusive experience provides a deep understanding and authentic connection to Australia’s Indigenous culture.

Discover this culture through the eyes of a local Aboriginal man, a respected member of the Bundjalung nation, born in Gadigal country. The tour starts within Sydney’s Royal Botanic Gardens.

The Botanic Gardens are rich in colourful Aboriginal history and culture. Join your Aboriginal guide, and discover the captivating history of the people and plants associated with the oldest botanic gardens in Australia.

Eat Indiginous Flavour

He is from the Arakwal language group of the Bundjalung Nation from the Northern Rivers, thereby making him a black sand, saltwater person. As a well-respected Indigenous story-teller, he shares his knowledge on indigenous history and teaches that culture is holistic, defined by its connection to family, community and country.

A keen chef, your host gives an insight into native flora with a focus on Indigenous bush food. Over morning tea you will taste some of Drew’s family’s traditional recipes as well as contemporary creations using native ingredients such as lemon myrtle, wattle seed and macadamia nut oil.

Here you will say goodbye to your Aboriginal guide and your Splendour host will take you on a scenic tour of Sydney’s Eastern Beaches.

Driving up the coast you will pass Coogee, Clovelly and Bronte beaches. You’ll visit an authentic Aboriginal Art Gallery to view art sourced from some of the most remote Aboriginal communities in the county.

You will stop for lunch at Coogee Beach giving you the chance to taste some of Sydney’s fresh and gourmet delights.

Fun fact – The name Coogee is said to be taken from a local Aboriginal word koojah which means “smelly place”. Another version is koo-chai or koo-jah, both of which mean “the smell of the seaweed drying”. No need to worry about the smell today – Coogee is one of the most beautiful beaches on Sydney’s coast.
