Maryung Ngurra 

Maryung Ngurra represents the harmony that the Dharug people have with the land. The seasonal changes tell them where they need to be to care for country and to survive. Their culture has many lore and is a spiritual life, where all are equal and live in harmony with our environment. When the Maryung (emu) shows herself moving in the night sky she is showing the peoples where they need to travel too, when it is time for nest making and egg laying to occur, and when to follow her song lines on their ngurra. They follow her ancient pathways, reflected in their ngurra and in the sky.
