Makuru
The coldest and wettest time of year is coming into full swing. The Makuru season marks the beginning of Winter throughout June and continues into July and traditionally represents fertility.
Pairs of Wardongs (ravens) can often be seen flying together during this season, and an influx of Maali (black swans) can also be observed upon the rivers and lakes of the South West.
The blues and purples of the Blueberry Lilies and Purple Flags will begin to emerge, their colours often used to represent the Makuru season.
