Kunburrai waterhole

A mother and daughter were searching for karrdbarda (long yams) near the Kunburrai waterhole. A echnidna cut across infront of them, and they tried to catch him, but he was spiky and they couldn’t grasp him. The echidna went into rocky country and so they tried to poke him with their digging sticks. Ngalyod, the rainbow serpent, smelled the blood and emerged to eat mother and daughter as punishment for hunting the wrong way. Today there’s a waterfall there on the Liverpool River between Manmoyi and Kabulwarnamyo.
