This is right in the middle of new and old Texas Downs Station homesteads. It is rich blacksoil grazing country, with mountains all around. Limestone country to the north and south and there are two rocks which are easily seen all the way around and the stockmen used them as landmarks when they were mustering cattle. The Ngarrangkarni (Dreaming) story is that the rocks represent a man and woman who had been through Law (young people), and travelled to this part of the country. They were husband and wife, and even though they were from Alice Downs way, they liked this place and decided to stay for a good while. They raised their children around these parts and after the children left, the man and woman stayed a bit longer and made the Law for this land. The rocks tell the story of their journey to this place and represent the man and woman who belong to this country.
