ENQUIRE

Parranga is the hot season or dry time when every grass, trees and spinifex all dry up and all the leaves go brown, yellow, orange and purple and the wind blows them away. They wait for the rainy season to come. During the parranga period, Eva and her family go hunting, fishing and camping out bush or by the river. Eva likes painting parranga because most of the pretty flowers bloom at this time.

Every parranga you would find purple flowers blooming, which are called Mullamulla. They can be found everywhere, growing on small bushes. You see them in the black soil country, and after fire has come through. They have a lovely scent and Eva likes to hang them in her house. It’s a soothing smell for everyone, both children and adults.
