A Giant from the Dreamtime animals of native Australian belief. He brought coal to the land long before the Europeans arrived. He was very proud of himself and was once invited to a ceremony on the other side of Australia. Since he believed he was liked so much, he decided to make a fire at frequent intervals during his journey to let his hosts know that he was coming. However he created so many fires with so many trees that he destroyed the forests beyond the Flinders Range. The burnt wood from the fire became coal and was eventually buried over the centuries. When mining took place in the region, coal was found indicating that fires had taken place many centuries before.
