Korlobarr- Red Kangaroo

Korlobarr was a big red kangaroo who, a long time ago, travelled from the north of western Arnhemland, hopping south and picking up Bininj (Aboriginal people) as he went. When he came to the middle of the country he dropped all the people he had gathered and left them there to wander aimlessley around. Yingarna, the ‘Creation Mother’ saw the Bininj and went to them. She put them into her dillybags which were strung from her headband and began to drop them at various places around western Arnhemland, giving them clan names and their own country.Korlobbarr travelled back to his own country near Marlkawo, where he put himself into the rock there. Korlobarr can still be seen today, a large rock painting of a big red kangaroo painted in white clay on the rock at Marlkawo.
