Noongar Season 


February / March - Warm to Hot - Second Summer

Bunuru is the time of hot easterly winds with cool south-westerly afternoon sea breezes. Noongar people move to coastal estuaries and reefs where fish and abalone proliferate. The white flowers of marri and the ghost gums are in full bloom. A striking plant is the zamia: the cones of the female plant emerge from the centre within masses of a cotton-wool like substance. As the season continues, seeds upon the cones change form green to bright red . this is a time to burn the land in mosaic patterns to help the bush replenish itself.
