Tika Tika rockholes are south of Patjarr, there are eight rockholes there. They were made by Ngirntaka the perenti goanna
ancestor who travelled from the west to Warburton. He was digging around hunting for tingka (sand gaonna) for food. He found two tingka to eat. He stopped one night and kept going in the morning. People were camping at Tika Tika before Patjarr
community was developed.

Matjiwa was born in 1946 at Tjulkun Rockhole, west of Patjarr.

Patjarr is an Aboriginal Community located in the heart of the Gibson Desert.
