Hot & Dry - December to January
The ‘hot and dry’ was characterised by the onset of hot easterly winds.
The signals of this season were the Christmas and paper bark trees
blossoming. Noogar people burnt mosaic sections of scrubland through fire-stick farming. This forced animals into the open to hunt and opened the canopy to the November rains, which increased germination of summer foodstuffs. An abundance of food was found along the costal lakes and river estuaries. The mullet, bream, marron and crabs were fat and ready for
harvest. Colours of this season are green, blue, orange and yellow.
