Jarlarlu is the country of Patrick Mung Mung’s father, George Mung Mung. Jarlarlu and Ngarrgurun are located North of the Bungle Bungles (Purnululu National Park). The country is hilly terrain, with waterholes and some areas of flat country.
As a young man, Patrick used to work as a stockman and gardener for Texas Downs Station. This gave him an opportunity to live and work and be in the country of his ancestors. Patrick still makes frequent visits back to his country on the weekends with his grandchildren. Mining companies are now looking for nickel on this country. There are many caves in this country. "Those little cheeky rock wallabies live in the nawans," says Patrick.
Jarlarlu is the name for a particular tree, also known as corkwood that grows along the Ord River catchment.
