Walkabout Creek is near McKinlay, NT and home to the famed Walkabout Creek Hotel.

Meaning for creek is dharran; creek bend is balganbaa
About Vicki B Littell
Vicki B Littell is an Australian watercolor artist living in Florida. She has been professionally creating art since 2016. Her work is influenced by her love of the "sunburnt country" and people's life stories.
