Waratah is New South Wales’ floral emblem. The name waratah comes from the Eora Aboriginal people, the original inhabitants of the Sydney area and means ‘red flowering tree’. Aboriginal people would sip the dew from the Waratah in the early morning, its invigorating essence believed to bring courage, especially when one is ill. The nectar was also ingested, providing a sweet treat.
