A place near Tjukurla, the story of Purrungu tells of how a woman went into an underground cave to collect water from a rockhole inside. As she was coming out a snake came upon her. Scaring it away, she walked backwards lest the snake come upon her again. She made it back to camp where all the women were sitting around.
