The Euroa Arboretum, Euroa, Victoria
We welcome you to Euroa Arboretum (‘the Arb’), a nurtured pocket of Taungurung Country that connects to our Taungurung story of healing, resilience and vitality.
Spend quality time with our Taungurung Elders who share the ways in which cultural life, both traditional and contemporary, are inextricably linked to biik (Country), and sense the duulin (pride) we have in looking after biik and Culture for future generations.
We welcome you to biik with a traditional Welcome Smoking Ceremony, followed by a guided walk along the daanak trail to share stories of seasonal native plant species and their uses for food, medicine, and cultural practice. Being part of this cultural experience at The Arb is about honouring our Ancestors but also planting the seeds that will strengthen our culture: inspiring and educating our youth, celebrating our Taungurung language, reviving cultural practices on biik and celebrating the positive community impact of caring for biik.
Quality time with a Taungurung guide, Welcome Smoking Ceremony, guided one-hour cultural walk at the Euroa Arboretum, morning tea using delicious bush foods, learn about cultural practice, quality time with an Elder to ask questions about culture and what you can do to support Taungurung Country and community aspirations.
