Lots of rain

"We get a little bit of rain, not as much as Oenpelli.
It floods everywhere."

Cold weather

"It gets windy and we make fire to make us warm.
We go fishing more because we feel cold and it
warms us up from the sand and sun."

Build up

"When it starts to warm up we feel hot and sweaty."

Permission to publish the Maung seasonal calendar is granted by the Senior Traditional Owners of South and North Goulburn Islands (2013).

Language explanation: Maung can also be written as Mawng which is the old way of spelling. The West Arnhem Regional Council requested the use of Maung for the Seasonal Calendar (2014).
