The timing of the seasons here applies generally to the northeast Arnhem Land coastal region. This diagram has been compiled by Katie Hayne in consultation with Dr R. Marika. The information has been modified from data collected by Markus Barber through direct observation and conversations with Djambawa Marawili and Ngulpurr Marawili at Blue Mud Bay. The circular diagram is based on a diagram by Pat Faulkner.
