The night creatures possum, wombat, bandicoot, curlew and owl; and the day creatures kangaroo, cockatoo, emu, echidna, pelican and goanna all live happily together in a beautiful valley of sweet grass and cool water. But one spring the rain didn't come and the waterhole dried up. The Rain Flower is delightful story of the bush creatures' search for the rain flower to bring the rain, and fill the rivers and waterhole. Their journey is one of learning: how to unite, seek advice, give opinion and work together.
