Noongar Season 

Kambarang

(Season of Birth)

  

During the Kambarang season, we see an abundance of colours and flowers exploding all around us. The yellows of many of the Acacia’s continue to abound, along with some of the Banksias and many other smaller delicate flowering plants including the Kangaroo Paw and orchids. Also during this time the Balgas will also start to flower, especially if they’ve been burn or closely shaved in the past year.
The “Mooja”, or Australian Christmas Tree (Nuytsia) is one of the most striking displays of flowers seen in this season. The bright orange and yellow flowers serve to signal the heat is on its way.
October is the most likely time of year that you’ll encounter a snake as reptiles start to awaken from hibernation and look to make the most of the warm to assist them in getting enough energy to look for food. It is also a time that many young families of birds will be singing out for their parents to feed them. Koolbardies (Magpies) will also be out protecting their nests and babies.
