Ngarrgooroon Country

“All that country my father's country, going all the way back to Billimack Spring. He grew up in this country and used to live out in the bush. He roamed this country as a kid until he was old enough to work on the station. This is juwurlinyji [hills] country and darwirrinji [springwater] country. Billimack Spring is a good water place, that's living water. There's one sharp hill called Jawagin standing up right near the spring. There are a lot of stone tomahawk there for the old people.” 

This painting portrays the Darrajayin hills from south west of Warmun.
