Good For What Ails You - Teas and Natural Remedies

Tour the garden to see our collection of culinary and medicinal herbs. In the kitchen, visitors can sample teas made with herbs from the garden, watch as we demonstrate making lozenges and gripe water, and learn how natural remedies were shared among communities.

Jams & Jellies

Almost every settler home had a small orchard, with soft fruit bushes planted in the garden. Knowing which native fruits were good to eat was passed onto settlers by Indigenous people, who showed settlers how to cook and dry the fruit. Sample our currant jelly, mint jelly and raspberry jam with fresh baked biscuits cooked on the hearth in Bradley kitchen.
