Jandamarra's hide out

Tunnel Creek Jandamarra's hide out.

For three years, Jandamarra tried to defend his lands and his people against police and white settlers. His vanishing tricks became legendary. At one point a police patrol managed to follow him to his hideout at the entrance to the Cave of Bats (Tunnel Creek) when word was received that he had raided Lillimilura Police Post.

Jandamarra was held in awe by other Aboriginal people as a magical person who could "fly like a bird and disappear like a ghost". They believed he was immortal, his body simply a physical manifestation of a spirit that resided in a water soak near Tunnel Creek.

Tunnel creek is a special place and really should be experienced with a Aboriginal cultural tour, like Dillon Andrews from Bungoolee tours based from Fitzroy Crossing, ph 08 91915633.

Dillon Andrews

Dillon Andrews, in a part of Tunnel creek where you can see they sky, do a tour with Dillon and see things you will not see on other tours, see and hear about the great rainbow snake that created this amazing tunnel and is so significant to Bunuba people.

I cannot stress the importance of doing a cultural tour, it takes a exciting experience into a cultural experience that will leave you in awe.
