Fire Country Dreaming is a story that refers to a fire that spread throughout Country. An old ancestral man that was a descendant of the Centralian Blue Tongued Lizard spirit lived on a hill with his two sons. The old man would feign blindness and send the two boys hunting in search of meat. While his sons were gone, he would he would hunt and eat anything he caught before they returned.

One day, the sons returned with a kangaroo that they had caught. Unfortunately the kangaroo was sacred to the Centralian Blue Tongued Lizard, unbeknown to the boys. In his anger, the old man decided to punish his sons and the next time they went out hunting, he put his fire stick to the ground and sent a huge bush fire after them, which chased them for many miles. The boys tried to beat out the flames, but the special magic of the Centralian Blue Tongued Lizard kept the fire alive.

The important sites of this story are depicted in this painting. Such sites include where the men camped in a cave, as well as the soakage site next to it, and where the kangaroo was killed.
