Within this artwork Betty has depicted the hill and landscape that she associates with her beautiful country known as Texas Downs Station. Where she spent her years working on the station as a housekeeper and remembers the long hours of hard work from chopping wood, clearing rocks from roads, cooking and scrubbing floors to going out bush looking for cattle. There are plenty of good fishing places around Ngarrgooroon, Betty explains, 'this place is a good place for hunting and fishing".
