"Benengoogwalem is my traditional country. It is the place where freshwater spring bubbles up from on top of the ridge and splits into two little creeks. There is a waterhole in the upper right surrounded Nhai nahal - waterlillies. The creeks join up as they flow towards Moonoomoorrem - the Keep River. In the lower right is where that spring starts. "It should be on the top of this painting but it looked better here for the painting." During the wet season the creeks overflow into billabong areas." --Judy Mengil

"This is my mother's traditional country at Binjin - Bucket Springs. Now it is in Keep River National Park. The three main billabongs are called Marlem, Gamanggarr-ngarim and Moolerrm. Nhal-nhal water lily grows around the bilabongs. We fish and hunt all around here. Benengoogwalem is where the creek flows from a freshwater spring. During the dreamtime the barramundi passed by the this place." -- Judy Mengil
