The Buchulla aborigines tell the story of a spirit, Yindingi, and his helper, K’gari, who’s job it was to make the land and sea. After working for a while, Yindingi suggested K’gari lay down and rest. When she awoke, she saw the landscape that Yindingi had created and she begged to be allowed to stay forever. Yindingi agreed, but K’gari could not remain a spirit. She was turned into an island. Yindingi covered her with flowers, forests, rivers, animals and people so K’gari would never be lonely. K’gari is the aboriginal name for Fraser Island in Queensland. It is a word that has come to mean paradise.
