Djilba – yellow wildflowers, swooping magpies and abundant bush tucker

The flowers are already coming, and many local bush blocks will soon be carpeted (as above) in yellow Prickly Moses (Acacia Pulchella), Egg and Bacon (Eutaxia Obovata) and delicate bush orchids, the first of which have already appeared in our shire. It is the season of Djilba in the Avon Valley, home to local Noongar people for 45,000 years – read more about our community’s priceless Avon Valley legacy in this month’s Noongar Waangkiny report on Page 11 of this month’s digital edition (see home page).
