Noongar Season 

Makuru

June / July - Cold and wet - The First Rains 


Now it is the coldest and wettest time of the year.  Noongar people continue to migrate inland to the Darling Scarp, to hunt and for shelter, as the winds turn to the west and south bringing cold rains.  Food sources change to those of the land, such as kangaroos.  The yellow flowers of the acacias are blooming followed by the white flowers of the peppermint. Animals start to pair up in preparation for breeding in the next season.

The Noongar season of Makuru was featured in the latest edition of the Greenpage newsletter.
