This is our place, our country, the country of our ancestors. The spirits of the ancestors live here, in the rocks, those sandstone escarpments.

Our ancestors made that art you see on the rocks.The Quinkans do their work at night. The good ones and those bad ones. The pictures and the paintings of the past are our link with the present

This is our country, the place of our ancestorsYou have to know that way to understand the Aboriginal way.

The land gives us what we need: food, shelter, tradition, law, dance.

They were put there in the dreaming. That way we live. All things work together: the land, the law, the culture, the heritage. That way things work.
