  • Did you know the calendar of the South West’s Nyoongar people includes six different seasons? Birak, Bunuru, Djeran, Makuru, Djilba and Kambarang all reflect the changes in the natural world that come with the passing of time over a year, and each is traditionally used as a guide to what to harvest and where to move across the land.

We’ve teamed up with our friends at Fremantle’s Lighthouse Baking to bring you six recipes that each fit with a Nyoongar season – helping you observe the seasons with something delicious and truly timely. June and July are known as the Makuru season – head to our website to find out more and to make this gorgeous Wattleseed and Chocolate Self-saucing Puddling! #peppermintbettertogether #indigenousfood #seasonaleating  #peppermintmagazine #peppermintpartners

  • If you love vintage frocks and you can get to Brissie from now until 19 August, we recommend you make a beeline for The Bowerbird and the Bride - an exhibition of exquisite bridal gowns from the vaults of award-winning costume designer Marion Boyce. This dreamy collection of dresses has been gathered together by the designer since her childhood - and we have an interview with the lady herself over on our website! 💕
