Melbourne has a strong and close-knit Aboriginal community. Visit the Koorie Heritage Trust and multi-award-winning Bunjilaka at the Melbourne Museum for new insights into the living context and legacy of Australia's First Peoples.
Discover the Royal Botanic Gardens with an Aboriginal guide. Taste native ingredients at Big Esso by Mabu Mabu in Federation Square, and the petite Mabu Mabu Tuck Shop in Yarraville.
In May/June, block out your calendar and join the community for the Dreamtime at the G footy match between Richmond and Essendon, part of the AFL's Indigenous Round at the Melbourne Cricket Ground.
Beyond Melbourne, explore Gippsland's Bataluk Cultural Trail or Brambuk: The National Park & Cultural Centre in the Grampians (Gariwerd). Take a tour at Tower Hill on the Great Ocean Road, or drop in at Baluk Arts on the Mornington Peninsula for a fresh perspective.
