This is a huge deep rockhole which belongs to the Seven Sisters Tjukurpa. The women were chasing a kuniya (carpet python) and he fled down a hole at Kulyuru. The women eager for a feed, dug and dug, deeper and deeper eventually catching the python. They cooked it up and ate it. Once they tasted the cooked meat they knew something was not right as the meat tasted strange. They realised that this was Wati Nyiru, who had transformed his body into that of the python. They flew to Minyma Nganpi rockhole where they performed a sacred dance before flying further west.

Kulyuru is made by the women digging for the python. It is a very deep single rockhole. Lennard recently visited this site on a helicopter trip organised by the Spinifex Land Management, which is incredibly special for Lennard as his country is not accessible by road.
