Six Nyoongar Seasons


The first inhabitants of Australia's South West were the Aboriginal people, believed to have had a connection with the land for almost 50,000 years. Conservationists by nature, they were semi-nomadic hunter-gatherers who followed a six season calendar, still used by Aboriginal people today. The six seasons - Birak, Bunuru, Djeran, Makuru, Djilba and Kambarang - represent the seasonal changes we see across the South West annually. 

Students from BPPS have created these wonderful paintings to represent the Six Nyoongar Calendar Seasons.

Please take the time to read the information and come and have a look at our wonderful art work, that is located on the Mem Fox Building blue display wall.
