At Ubir the Rainbow Serpent known as Garranga'rreli, in her human form, she was called Birriwilk, travelled through this area with another woman looking for sweet lily roots
As she passed through Ubirr she painted her image on the rock to remind people of her presence
She rested in the forest at Manngarre, digging a hole in the cool sand
The heap of sand from the hole became a rock where a huge banyan tree now grows: the raised walkway on the Manngarre rainforest walk passes over the rock.
Birriwilk stopped to rest in the East Alligator River: the round rocks in the middle of the River near Cahills Crossing mark the place where she rested
From here she crossed the River into Arnhem Land, where she remains in a quiet water hole
Her visit to Ubirr is part of a Creation pathway that links Ubirr with Manngarre, the East Alligator River, and other places in Arnhem Land
