Powerful being in Darug/Darkinyung culture. A gigantic eel-being or rainbowed serpent who possibly created the Hawkesbury river and its valley. He may have been the same Being as Gurangatch, who in the mythology of the nearby Gundungurra people, tore up rock and earth with his powerful body in his desperate flight to escape the hunter Mirrigan, the tiger-quoll, and so created the Coxs and Wollondilly rivers.
