Water Dreaming depicts 'Puyurru', an important site located west of Yuendumu. In the usually dry creek beds are soakages, or naturally occurring wells. The owners for this site are Nangala / Nampijinpa women and Jangala / Jampijinpa men.

Two Jangala men who are rainmakers, sang the rain that unleashed a giant storm. The storm travelled across the country from the east to the west, initially travelling with another story; the ‘Termite Dreaming’ from Warntungurru to Warlura, a waterhole eight miles east of Yuendumu.

At Warlura, a gecko called Yumariyumari blew the storm on to Lapurrukurra and Wilpiri. Bolts of lightning shot out at Wirnpa and at Kanaralji. At this point the Dreaming track also includes the ‘Children of the Clouds Dreaming’ story. The water Dreaming built hills at Ngamangama using baby clouds, and also stuck long pointy clouds into the ground at Jukajuka, where they can still be seen today as rock formations.
