Many thousands of years ago, in the faraway land of Australia, it was Dreamtime. In Dreamtime, the Great Rainbow Serpent, Goorialla, creator of this world, awakens, and goes in search of his people. In the wake of his travels, he creates the mountains, valleys, and rivers that we now recognize as Australia. But not only did he give the people the land, he gave them his spirit in the sky--the rainbows, and the shooting stars...This is the Serpent's story--filled with magic, and myth, and the "becoming of all things." Join us in the beautiful re-telling of this powerful creation story, and learn more about the mysterious country that is "the Land Down Under," Australia.
