Vaughan Springs is an important waterhole and natural spring located near Mt Doreen Station. Vaughan Springs Dreaming tells the story of two Rainbow Serpents who lived together as man and wife. The woman 'Rainbow Serpent' was of the Napanangka skin group, while the man 'Rainbow Serpent' was of the Japangardi skin group.

The women of the Napangardi and Napanangka skin groups sat by the two Rainbow Serpents, cleaning them. For this service, the two Serpents allowed the women to take water from this waterhole, as the two Serpents were the ceremonial owners of this land. The two Rainbow Serpents can still be seen today at Vaughan Springs.

(S) This artwork is stretched and is currently hanging in the gallery.
