Bujari Gamarruwa (Good Day)

Waraburra Nura (The Happy Wanderer's Place) is The University of Technology Sydney's Indigenous garden on the North-facing balcony of the main tower.

The audio recordings on this site are D'harawal Senior and botanist Aunty Fran Bodkin explaining the plants and their uses. Below she tells us about the associations Australian plants form with each other and the importance of Eucalypts in that relationship.

We acknowledge the traditional owners of the land on which the University of Technology, Sydney stands, the Gadigal people of the Eora Nation. The land on which we live, learn and create. We pay our deepest respects to their elders past and present for their knowledge is strong and continues to this day and to the emerging elders for they are the leaders of tomorrow.
