Another view of the second gorge on the Katherine river. It was an ideal spot for a short walk and a swim.

V2 is a photo of some rock art painted by the Javoyn people centuries ago. It represents Bolung, the Rainbow Serpent.

“Bolung, who is believed to inhabit the deep green pools found in the Second Gorge, is not only an important life giving figure but may also act as a destroyer. This can take the form of lighting and may bring monsoonal floods.

Our people do not fish in the pools where Bolung sits. When fishing close to these pools, we can take only a small portion of the fish caught and throw-back the rest in order to appease Bolung. Drinking water must not be taken from these deep pools but rather from the shallow associated waters. Pregnant women and new initiates may not swim in the Katherine River for fear of disturbing Bolung. Unlike other Jawoyn Dreaming which may be addressed for assistance in hunting and foraging such as Barrava (the Kookaburra), Bolung must not be spoken to and must be left undisturbed.”

The rocks and artwork are excellent captures JN, and V1 is a lovely scenic capture.
