This page shows some plants that have medicinal and trditional uses, that can be found in the Sydney and Blue Mountains regions. Most of them can be found in other parts of Australia, and a some are found in other parts of the world also.
WARNING: Never eat
plants that are growing in an area where they may have been sprayed
with pesticides or herbicides (weed killers), or where the water
supply to the area could be polluted, such as from urban or industrial
run-off. Never eat any part of any wild growing plant unless you are certain you can identify it. Being certain means you have developed a maturity of skill in identifying plants. It does not mean you are pretty sure it looks just like "that plant you saw once on some website".
ANOTHER WARNING: Please note that not all the plants listed in this section are food.
