Kimberley Bush Medicine is a comprehensive guide to the medicinal plants that were regularly used by the Indigenous people of the Kimberley region, providing alternative treatments and protection from common ailments. Authors Madison King and retired nurse educator John Horsfall have compiled this invaluable knowledge from the wisdom passed down by Kimberley elders, ensuring that it will not be lost forever with the passing of time.


This practical reference covers over 250 different species of medicinal plants, providing information on their uses and how to prepare them. It is the first of its kind to provide such a comprehensive compilation of medicinal plants used by Aboriginal people of the Kimberley region before European settlement.


Kimberley Bush Medicine includes images of each plant, making it an essential resource for both Indigenous and non-Indigenous people. With no comparable book on plant medicines available, this guide is a must-have for anyone interested in traditional healing practices and the preservation of ancient knowledge.


"Kimberley Bush Medicine is a must-have reference for anyone interested in exploring Australia’s vast range of culturally important plants."  Fiona Murdoch, Growing Australian No.267 March 2024
