All things in the landscape were left by the Creation Ancestors.
They left ceremonies, rules to live by, laws, plants, animals and people, then they turned into djang (Dreaming places).
They taught Aboriginal people how to live with the land. From then on Aboriginal people became keepers of their country.

The Creation Time, or Dreamtime, is the time when the Creation Ancestors were travelling across the landscape. The tracks left by the Ancestors are known as Dreaming tracks.
One of the main Creation Ancestors in the Kakadu area is Warramurrungundji (Mother of the Earth), who travelled to Kakadu with her husband from the islands to the north-east. She sent out spirit children, telling them which languages to speak and teaching them how to hunt and gather food from their land. She created river systems, billabongs, and much of the wildlife in the region. Her journey completed, she sat down and rested, changing into a large rock, which marks her Dreaming site.
