Indeed, you’ll never look at native plants the same way, after your guide reveals the many inventive uses that the Boon wurrung people found for the flora that surrounded them. More than just a source of food, plants were used in a multitude of ways: as medicines, as bandages, and to make tools and weapons. The leaves of lomandra longifolia, for instance, were used to weave dillybags, while the nectar from the banksia flower was used to make a sweet drink.
