The Ecological Society of Australia

Monday, 3 July 2023 - 8:00am to Friday, 7 July 2023 - 5:00pm
Darwin, NT
Larrakia Country
Northern Territory

Please join us in Darwin for ESA 2023 and experience the Larrakia season of Dinidjanggama, our ‘heavy dew’ time. This is the time of perfect weather – warm days with clear blue skies, balmy evenings and cool nights. Many plants are starting to flower, including the regionally dominant Maminyjuma (Darwin woolybutt, Eucalyptus miniata) and Manigurrma (Darwin stringybark, E. tetrodonta). Native bees are busy collecting nectar to make Dadbinggwa (sugar bag). Dambilinggwa (water lilies) are blooming and Gakingga (Magpie geese) are feeding their young as the floodplains start drying out. It is a time of great promise for the future. I look forward to welcoming you to our special place during this special time.
