In the Ngarrangkarni (Dreaming) an old man went hunting with his two dogs. The dogs chased after a kangaroo and disappeared. The man sat at the top of a hill, high above Bow River (30 km north of Warmun) and called out for his dogs to come back. He turned into a rock and can still be seen standing there, calling out for the dogs. Both the dogs and kangaroo also turned into rocks. This place is called Sugarbag Yard. The etching shows the man at the top of the hill.
