This walk is now fully booked. Please check back in 2019 for future Six Season walk dates.
Perth NRM, together with local Elders conduct the series of guided cultural walks around the Perth region to celebrate the Noongar Six Seasons.
Unlike the four seasons of summer, autumn, winter, and spring that are generally accepted worldwide, the Noongars followed a calendar of six seasons. With each season, the Noongar diet would change to match what they could find while traversing the land.
Birak is the first summer. This season runs through December and January when the warm days are cooled by afternoon sea breezes. Noongars would burn the land to improve grazing patterns for game animals and improve their mobility while travelling.
Join us on the Birak walk, our last for 2018, this December.
Date: Friday, 7 December
Location: Point Peron Car Park (there’s a map for this on Trybooking)Point Peron Road, Peron.
