This is the place where Nora was born. It is Mulga country and a great place to find Honey Ants. There is a story of a mother with her two children and they have great success in this place finding honey ants. They enjoy the sweet reward for their efforts.
Nora was born near Jameson, her family holds the story for Illurpa. Nora lives at Blackstone with her family and enjoys the traditional life offered here. She is a custodian of the Illurrpa Story: One place where Kuniya stayed. Kuniya is a giant snake that travelled through the desert. Here at Ilurrpa, male and female snakes have 7 eggs. A matted black fibre found at Ilurrpa Bore is said to be the black hair left over after Kuniya had swallowed many people and then was sick, the black hair flowing down the hillside to Ilurrpa.
