On the other side of Kupartiya, there is a big spring you could access by climbing the hills on the other side of the river, near Nipper’s dam. The spring has beautiful white sand and lots of Dinjil (snappy gum trees). Eva would take her children there when they were young.

Gooniyandi people used to live there building yards. They used to collect seeds and bush medicine. The Walmajarri name for that place is Mangu, meaning big perch (a kind of fish).
