August is the last month of our winter. It usually rains, there are lots of rainbows and it snows in the mountain areas. Sometimes it is fine with a beautiful clear blue sky but it's always cool or cold.

Some introduced trees, especially fruit and nut trees, start to show bud growth and birds begin mating and making nests from now on.

There are no public holidays in August but Daffodil Day is at the end of the month. Rugby and netball are still important but indoor sports like badminton and are also popular.

This site always has new stuff every month so come back soon.
