  • About

    Kay Lindjuwanga has depicted the billabong located near her outstation at Milmilngkan. The water comes out at Milmilngkan and there are springs there surrounded by water pandanus (Pandanus aquaticus) where the water comes out of the ground. This might be caused by rainbow serpents which live under the ground there. The cross-hatching represents the country at Milmilngkan.
