The Moodjar Project

Moodjar, Christmas Tree or Nuytsia floribunda


What’s it all about?

Can you find a Moodjar tree in your neighbourhood? It’s also called the Australian Christmas tree which only flowers in Kambarang and Birak seasons. Locate a Moodjar tree in your suburb or on a journey, let us know the location, and it will be added to our JS Moodjar map in NexusJ.

Pop in to NexusJ to help us put a yellow dot on our giant map to show the location of the Moodjar tree you found


email Ms Lockyer with your tree’s location


Leave a comment here telling us the location of your Moodjar tree.



Thanks to Emily L, Asha B. and Ridley, we have created the BURIED IN BOOKS zine. We hope to publish it each week, this year and next.

  • Leave a comment to:
  • tell us what you think of our zine
  • give the writers some constructive feedback
  • let us know if you have something for the next edition.

Biblionasium and Learning

Meet the Stormtrooper family! In this movie, can you spot the TECHFAIL moment? Little Stormie needs to explain to Dad how Biblionasium is connected to learning.

We are using Biblionasium during library classes. Leave a comment here: how do you think Bibilionasium is connected to learning? What do you think Little Stormie said to Dad to convince him that he should sign the permission form?

In this movie, Goggles and Spike introduce Biblionasium to our classes:
