Yolngu Seasons

North-east Arnhem Land, Northern Territory

Our region comprises six seasons as displayed on the calendar:

  • Gunmul
  • Mayaltha
  • Miḏawarr
  • Dharratharra
  • Rarranhdharr
  • Dhuluḏur

The role of the Yolŋu Seasons Calendar is to visually demonstrate changes to the landscape across these seasons and correlations to the availability of bush tucker throughout the year.

Healthy Country Plan

We know that the land needs its people to care for it and to keep it healthy. In the same way we know that caring for the country keeps us healthy – physically, spiritually and mentally.
