Betty says 'all that country is my father's country, going all the way back to Billimack Spring. He grew up in this country and used to live out in the bush. He roamed this country as a kid until he was old enough to work on the station.

This is joowalinji (hills) country and darwirrinji (spring, living water) country. Billimack is a good water place, that's living water. There's one sharp hill called Jowagin standing up right near the spring. There are a lot of stone tomahawk there for the old people.'
