The waterhole was created by a father and son who became water snakes. They make the water a sweet sugary taste. The Tjitayi (pronounced ji-ta-yi) family will drink the water when they visit it. They would bring their billycans to the waterhole and fill it up full, then when they go back home they would make tea and drinks with it without having to add sugar.
No matter what time of the year the waterhole is full of water.
The two water snakes still live at Pukara but are currently sleeping.
