This is a story of the time when the earth was young and the land was being created. It tells of a powerful and awesome water snake called Wunambi.
The Wongutha people of the Eastern Goldfields area of Western Australia say that this huge creature roamed the earth, and that the great tracks it made became the creeks and rivers we know today. Wunambi is still regarded with great respect by Aboriginal people.
