Current Season

Barrangga

August - mid December

Barrangga is build up time. It is hot and humid, with thalangu (dust & storms), and walangu (gales) whipping across country. The hot weather signals a big shift for our reptiles as the jungurra (olive python) and walaganburu (rock python) wake up from their cold weather sleep. The flowering Bandiran (silver-leaf paperbark) tells us that the gayi (crocodile) are now laying their eggs.
