A long time ago, in the land of Guugu Yumithirr people, mythic creatures hunted, danced, played and gathered food. The Magpie brothers chased the giant Dingo, the greedy White Cockatoo stole food from two Night Owl sisters, Stormcloud threw lightning at Frill Lizard and Eagle walked on the ground. As they roamed about, they disturbed the land, making rivers, lagoons and mountains, spreading plants and changing the colour of animals — creating the world we see today.
