The Bunya tree and its place in tradition

The awe inspiring Bunya tree and its oh so difficult to open nut plays a special part in indigenous tradition.

And what better time to find out about the part it plays in indigenous life and culture then from well-known Maleny environmentalist, Bev Hand.

Bev, the organiser of the Maleny Bunya Festival held earlier this year, is the guest speaker at the Maleny Library on Monday 9th July as part of NAIDOC week.

Go along to hear Bev speak about the integral role that the Bunya tree played in indigenous life including the traditional Bunya gatherings and their place in indigenous cultural heritage.

Bev is a keen supporter of Barung Landcare and all money raised from her public speaking goes towards the Bunya Dreaming festival.

The free talk starts at 10am and includes morning tea. Bunya Pine trees will be available for sale on the day. To book, contact Maleny library on 5429 6222.
