"Waterhole surrounded by jilji [sand dunes] near a place called Wirriwirlki. My father died near this place. The hills are called Kulkumirnti and we used to hunt around these hills with my family. People came from south, north and east to this waterhole Wirriwirlki."

Mervyn Numbagardi was born in Wirrtiny and grew up in the Walmajarri country and Pikarrang (Johanna Springs) in the Mangala country next to Wirriwirlki, his father’s country.
