In the Ngarrangkarni (Dreaming), Karnkiny the fishing man or Kurlmi went out fishing to this one fishing spot. He got all the fish and separated the big ones from the little ones. He chucked all the big fish away in another river and kept all the little fish (kundarrning). They swam down this hill and you can still se them there today (in stone). When you go fishing at this spot you can only catch little fish. This is Mabel's country at Darrajayin (Springvale Station).
