Birak Season

 Birak is one of the Six Noongar Seasons and represents the months of December and January. It is known as the First Summer and The Season of the Young.

The Southwest showcases spectacular colours from the sky in pinks, oranges, yellows and reds as the sun rises and the sun sets in the season of Birak. Birak Season is referred to as the 'burning season', where Noongar people would initiate 'controlled burning', in order for the land to regenerate and allow for environmental regrowth.

Mosaic fire practices were utilised and 'cool fire' practises ensured the fire was controlled at all times. The sea breeze in the mornings and evenings makes this time of year refreshing and the ocean always gave an abundance of fresh food.
