The name of a great Rainbow Serpent from the Dreamtime animals of the myths of Native Australia. Wanambi is a cosmic multi-coloured python that lives in deep waters. Wanambi created the formation for gullies, rivers and billabongs. He is known to sleep in the mud during the dry season and flies to the sky as a rainbow sending down rain to help life re-grow during the wet season. He has a fascination for anything that is iridescent.
