This is the Aboriginal legend of the formation of the landscape on Cape York Peninsula. Goorialla, the Rainbow Serpent, was looking for his own tribe. On his travels he formed mountains, a deep gorge, and a lily lagoon called Minalinka. Eventually he found his own people. He showed them how to make headdresses of feathers and how to dance. When a big storm blew up, all the people built shelters except the Bil-bil boys. When they sought shelter in Goorialla's humpy he opened his mouth and swallowed them. Their people followed Goorialla when he left and cut him open to release the brothers who had turned into Rainbow Lorikeets. When Goorialla woke and discovered what had happened he was so incensed his rage caused the mountain to shake and thunder. He hurled parts of the mountain all over the country to form the hills and the mountains of today (Source: book).
