15 September 2016 Experience Life as an Early Settler

Timber-getters were the first European settlers

Damper, billy tea, bush ballads and yarns are all on offer at the opening event for a new Early Settler Walk at the Botanic Garden on Wednesday, September 28 at 10am.

Anyone coming along will be invited to be the first to enjoy the new Walk, which weaves through the trees for about 500 metres.

Along the way, visitors can enjoy interpretive boards highlighting the Coffs Coast’s native plants through beautiful botanical drawings, historical photographs and descriptions made by early settlers.

The opening event is to be held opposite the glasshouses, a short walk along the main route through the Garden.

The opening event costs $2 per person. Please RSVP by Monday September 26 via the Botanic Garden reception office on 6648 4188 between 10am and 3pm.
