Keelbundoora Scarred Tree & Heritage Trail

Keelbundoora Scarred Tree

The Keelbundoora Scarred Tree and Heritage Trail is a self-guided walk created to recognise and preserve the ecological and cultural significance of remaining vegetation on RMIT’s Bundoora campus, which sits on Aboriginal (Wurundjeri) land.

The ancient river red gums are estimated to be up to 800 years old; among the 94 trees, six scarred trees are registered under the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Act (ATSIA), three are canoe trees and another three are food implement trees.
