For over 35,000 years, the Melaleuca alternifolia species has flourished at Meluka’s home, over two thousand acres of pristine rainforest wetlands, nestled deep within Australia’s Bungawalbin Valley. The Bungawalbin Valley has been identified as the birthplace of Melaleuca alternifolia tea tree. Situated in the Northern Rivers region in Australia’s state of New South Wales, the traditional Bundjalung people know the lands of the Bungawalbin as the ‘healing ground’. Their stories tell of the Australian native tea tree and its use in traditional culture. Leaves and twigs of tea trees at the lagoon’s edge were said to fall into the water, staining it a rich bronze, and infusing it with tea tree’s signature properties. Today, from our pristine location, in the birthplace of Australian tea tree, we proudly produce our range of tea tree and honey derived products. We pledge our commitment to protecting the unique ecosystem and ancient mother trees in the Bungawalbin Valley. Through sustainable practices, we ensure the environment remains as nature intended.
