In the creation story of the Dreaming, the Rainbow Serpent fashioned the earth and then returned to a spot east of the Kimberleys at a place where the rainbow meets the earth.

This collection of huge, round, red-colored boulders is found in the Tennant Creek region of Australia's Northern Territory.
