Djilba (August-September) is the fifth season in the Nyoongar Calendar. This is the season of growth, as the weather begins to warm up. Djilba season is a time to look for the yellow and cream flowers starting on mass.
As the season progresses and the temperatures continue to rise, we’ll start to see the flower stalks of the balgas emerging in preparation for the coming Kambarang season.
