For the Kaurareg people of the Torres Strait this isn't just a hillside. It's sacred ground.

The site is central to the creation story of Muralug (also known as Prince of Wales Island).

In its red soil they see the spilled blood of the warrior-giant Waubin.

His body and the bodies of his wives are represented in rocks that can be seen off another island when the tide is low.

His saw shark sword is their totem.
