Kambarang "the flowering" is one of the six seasons observed by the Noongar people who's territory runs along the south-western coast of Western Australia. Roughly corresponding to the months of October and November, Kambarang is Spring for the people of the Noongar nation. Kambarang brings a gentle warming to the land, an awakening of the wildlife, and an explosion of wildflowers. Birds return from their northern migrations and the land, one of the most bio-rich regions in Australia, reverberates with life.
