Banksia serrata 'Pygmy Possum'

Overview

Adam Shipp is a proud Wiradjuri man and a keen interpreter of traditional Aboriginal plant use. During his NAIDOC week walks at the Australian National Botanic Gardens, you will learn about a range of important native plants found across Australia.

There is a great diversity of food, medicinal and fibre plants that we continue to use today. On this interactive walk, you will have an opportunity to smell, feel, and taste, inspiring a deeper understanding of native plants.

Meeting outside the Visitor Centre this walk will run for approximately 90 minutes with plenty of opportunities to ask questions along the way.

Bookings essential.
