During Kambarang aka Wildflower Season (season of birth Oct-Nov) you'll see an abundance of colours and flowers exploding around us. The yellows of the acacias, and other vibrant colours from the banksias, kangaroo paw and orchids. Animals are more likely to encounter a snake as reptiles start to awaken from hibernation. Many things are undergoing transformation with the warm change in weather and Kambarang stands to celebrate the season of birth and renewal. For the latest about your community, follow the City of Belmont on Facebook, Instagram and sign up for the e-newsletter.
This is the 5th season of the Noongar calendar of which there are six Noongar seasons. Each represents the environmental and seasonal changes that occur around us and contain a deeper description of our subtle and distinct experience of plants, flowers and animals around us. For your interest, the six Nongar seasons are -
Birak (December – January)
Bunuru (February – March)
Djeran (April – May)
Makuru (June – July)
Djilba (August – September)
Kambarang (October – November)
Take a moment to stop and tune into the magic impulse of nature as it bursts forth in blossom, new baby birds and animals, and the magnificent renewal of life everywhere.
