During our Season of Creation series we built a picture of the annual seasons of our local area as identified by the people of the Kulin Nation, by associating changes in the weather with the life cycles of indigenous plants and animals, and movements in the night sky.
Poorneet, Tadpole Season, the season we are in currently, then
Buath Gurru, Grass Flowering Season,
Kangaroo Apple Season as Christmas approaches,
Biderap, Dry Season and Luk, Eel Season
From April to July is Waring, Wombat Season
Finally we reach Guling Orchid Season
Read here for the full details for each of these seasons and photos of the emerging installation.

Indigenous Recognition Sculpture
The Indigenous Recognition Sculpture (in the front corner of our property) was installed in December 2012. The sculpture acknowledges the traditional owners of the land and also the significance of the gum leaves used in the opening of the church after the renovations to our property in 2010.
