Boronia Tours provides interpretive walks around Sydney Harbour and in the Northern part of Sydney. All tours are led by Jennifer Farrer, a professional member of the Institute of Australian Tour Guides, and reflect her interest and knowledge of Sydney’s early history and Sydney’s unique flora.

Themes include:

Sydney’s Spring Flora. The unique sandstone environment of Sydney supports one of the most diverse flora in the world. Flowers can be seen at most times of the year but the Spring display is best.
Bush Tucker . The Bush was the supermarket, pharmacy and hardware store for the Darug people. It is quite easy to see some of the plant used every day by the local Aboriginal people on a short bush walk.
Plants used in Colonial Sydney. The early years of the Sydney settlement were called the hungry years because the Europeans :did not appreciate the abundant food around them. Gradually they came to use plants for bush tucker, medicine and for everyday needs such as soap and ropes. These plants are still in the bush to rediscover.
Sydney Harbour. Much of the foreshore of Sydney Harbour is now serviced with easy to walk footpaths. Explore the maritime and industrial history at Pyrmont , the indigenous plants at Ball’s Head and Berry Island or the history of early European settlement along the River Walk at Meadowbank and Kissing Point

Walks for small groups of 2 to 15 people.
