Betty Carrington's - Darrajayin Hills

Darrajayin Hills.These are the Darrajayin Hills from south west of Warmun. 'All that country my father's country, going all the way back to Billimack Spring,' Betty Carrington says. He grew up in this country and used to live out in the bush. He roamed this country as a kid until he was old enough to work on the station. This is juwurlinyji [hills] country and darwirrinji [spring water] country. Billimack Spring is a good water place, that's living water.There's one sharp hill called Jawagin standing upright near the spring. There are a lot of stone tomahawk there for old people'.
