This strongly aromatic bush is a native to south east New South Wales, eastern Victoria and Tasmania. Native Thyme was used by indigenous Australians for its medicinal properties. The bush grows up to 2 metres high, with a showy display of lilac flowers on the tips in spring.
This plant is related to the Westringia and naturally occurs in cool moist gullies, particularly along river banks.
Use with kangaroo, chicken, turkey, pork or lamb.
