An essential guide and invaluable resource for anyone interested in herbal medicine, Australian flora and the indigenous Australian culture.

Plants have been used for medicinal purposes since earliest recorded history and Australia?s varied flora provided Aboriginal people with medicines. With the arrival of Europeans much of this knowledge was overtaken by modern drugs and techniques but today there is a revival of interest in traditional medicines.

Australian Medicinal Plants covers the Aboriginal use of native plants and explains how the first settlers learned from the Aborigines their medicinal values. There is information on nearly 500 individual plants, how they were used, what their known pharmacological constituents are, where to find them and how to prepare remedies. The species are helpfully arranged in chapters according to their use: for fevers, painkillers, antiseptics and digestive disorders for instance.

I would not buy this product again


I would rather the picture and the information of the plant on the same page. And multiple pictures of each plant. The whole plant the leaves the flower the fruit ect.



Great reference book


Great reference book for what you can use certain plants for, also lists where the plants/trees grow so if you choose to grow your own you can



Herbalist guide to the outback


This book is a fantastic guide to australian medicinal plants, and is very useful when coupled with internet research. This is because there aren't many pictures to allow identification of the species, also some medicinal descriptions are vague and the additional research goes a long way to fill in gaps. All in all an excellent source of information for novices and experts alike
