In this short animated film we’re taken back to the early 1800s when Adnyamathanha children of the Flinders Ranges were inspired, schooled and entertained by their interactions with country.

The characters in the story are three adventurous Adnyamathanha kids who set out for a day of exploration near their camp. The children play traditional games and spook one another with tales of the ancient creatures of their country.

They see unusual tracks that set their hearts and imaginations racing. Then, unexpectedly they make a discovery that changes their lives forever.
