Thank you for your positive feedback. We are glad you enjoyed your tour on the Explorer. Experiencing the Gardens with a Guide on our Explorer is a great way to learn about the Gardens and all the amazing work done here in protecting our botanic collections. We look forward to having you back in the future.

I booked the Aboriginal Heritage Walk hoping to learn more about the local Indigenous history and flora and it couldn't have been better. Our tour guide, a young man of Indigenous heritage, was the nicest person I met, and his stories and explanations along the walk in the Garden were superb. He answered all our questions, demonstrated the use of some of the traditional tools, and we even got to taste some of the edible plants.
This Walk will inspire you if you immerse yourself in the nature and wonderful stories and wisdom of the Indigenous peoples.

Hi Iva, thank you for providing such glowing feedback. We agree that the Aboriginal Heritage Walk is a wonderful way to gain more insight into First Nations history and culture, right here in the heart of Melbourne. Jakobi is an amazing guide and is always excited to share his knowledge and experiences. We hope to see you in the gardens again soon.

Amazing! Engaging tour leader and beautiful view. The place is a bit too far from the city, so better take your own car than public transport like I did.
