How Bung Yarnda (Lake Tyers) was formed

Narkabungdha, the sea, was tired from playing with fish, rushing over rocks and rolling up and back on the sand.  He searched the coast for somewhere to rest.  At last he found a quiet place with tall gum trees for shade and soft earth to lie on. Narkabungdha lay down to sleep. He wriggled down into the soft sand, turning his body this way and that until he was comfortable. This place became Bung Yarnda (Lake Tyers), a place where Narkabungdha still rests among the trees.
