Nyungar people formed the basis of a six season year described by the prevailing weather conditions with associated flora and fauna activities and growth.


Birak was the hot dry time over December and January


Bunuru covered late summer and early autumn over February and March


Djeran covered the cooler period of April and May


Makuru was early winter from June and July


Djilba spanned late winter and early spring over August and September


Kambarang with decreasing rain went from October to November


The Undalup Association is formed to hold festivals named after the seasons in which they are being held.  e.g. “Undalup Makuru Festival”


“Undalup Festival Inc.” translates from Nyungar language to mean “Busselton Festival Inc.”

Courier New is a throwback font with a vintage feel. It’s great for storytelling, narratives and news reporting.
