Noongar people have traditionally hunted and gathered food according to the six seasons which are:
Birak – December and January, the first summer
Bunuru – February and March, the second summer
Djeran – April and May, autumn
Makuru – June and July, the first rains
Djilba – August and September, the second rains
Kambarang – October and November, the wildflower season
The seasons indicate which animal and plant resources are plentiful at those times. Noongar people know when it is the season for harvesting by signs in nature.
The City of Kwinana have generously funded our interactive bush tucker display which will be a source of real food and knowledge.
The Bush Tucker display is currently being finished...watch this space.
