Story

“This is my country near Kildirk station. Down from Moornboo River between two hills is a place called Warridja. In the Narrangarni there were women having bogey (wash) in the creek water. The women were naked. Some young boys tried to sneak up to them and swim through the women’s legs. The women got a big fright and died. Now in the river you can see the black rocks where the women died of fright!”
