Lukarla McCready
 
I was born in Derbyshire England in 1985 and emigrated to Australia In 1991 with my parents, older sister and two younger brothers.
 
 We have moved back and forth a few times in the past 27 years but Rockingham has been my home for most of my life.
 
 I have a very close family and extended family/friends and I love spending time with them.
 
In 2019 I married my lovely Steve and we have a tribe of nieces and nephews that we love.
 
I have worked in the hospitality industry since I was 16 and after studying business and accounting.  I purchased a café in Shoalwater where I started Impression Catering.
 
 We are now based in Port Kennedy and have been growing ever since.
 
 I love to entertain and bring people together over food. Helping people brings me great happiness and I see Rotary as a forum to give back to our community and to help people locally and globally and that is why I joined.
 
 I look forward to getting to know you all and doing great work together.
 
6 SEASONS IN YEAR

Kambarang—season of birth

EelSecond spring: October-November

Transformational time of year
Flowers abound

 

The lifestyle for the Nyoongar communities during Kambarang

During the Kambarang season, we see an abundance of colours and flowers exploding all around us. The yellows of many of the Acacias continue to abound, along with some of the Banksias and many other smaller delicate flowering plants including the Kangaroo Paw and Orchids. Also during this time the Balgas will also start to flower, especially if they've been burnt in the past year or closely shaved.

One of the most striking displays of flowers to be seen during this season will be the "Mooja", or Australian Christmas Tree (Nuytsia). The bright orange/yellow flowers serve to signal the heat is on its way.

For the animals, October is also the most likely time of the year that you'll encounter a snake as the reptiles start to awaken from their hibernation and look to make the most of the warm to assist them in getting enough energy to look for food. It's also a time that many young families of birds will be singing out for their parents to feed them. Koolbardies (Magpies) will also be out protecting their nests and their babies.

Many things are undergoing transformation with the warm change in the weather.

Longer dry periods accompany a definite warming trend.

The Nyoongar calendar has six seasons, each representing the changes we see in the environment.

 
More accurate and a better description of what actually happens.
Locally there are 6 seasons starting December and about 2 months each.
