Adjumarllarl and Omwarl

Adjumarllarl and his sister Omwarl were two ancestral Dogs, who came to Gunbalanya via the bush-turkey dreaming region on the East Alligator River. They travelled a long way through central and western Arnhem Land, digging holes to find water as they went. Some of those places became permanent waterholes that are still there today. Omwarl and Adjumarllarl walked past Injalak Hill and finally arrived at a place called Ngindjarnh. As Omwarl climbed up the rocks, she slipped and broke her leg. In need of water and unable to walk, she sent her brother off in search of a nearby spring. When he did not return, she died and transformed into a large rock, supported by three pillars of stone that were her legs, south of the township. In search of water, Adjumarllarl continued on towards an escarpment some distance east of Oenpelli. Adjumarllarl reached the waterfall north east of Gunbalanya but by the time he finally found water, he was so tired that he lay down and became a flat stone that rests at the bottom of the fall.
