These are the limestone hills in Alice Downs country back to Panton side. The rocks are on top of each other near the creek. Gordon Barney says gardiya (white people) call this place Storm Hill country. When working on his country, now called Alice Downs station, Gordon and other Gija station workers would go on holiday, "hunting for kangaroo, porcupine, sugarbag, everything" at this place.
