ENQUIRE

In Bronco Valley, west of Ban.gurr, Baulk Face Range and in Mick Jawalji’s part of Gija country, there is a place called Dabanjuwa. There is a creek that flows from the top of Ban.gurr Range down to Dabanjuwa.

In the Dreamtime, a man passed through Dabanjuwa and left his fat there and is a now a kangaroo. You can still see the fat, seen as a shiny stone today.
