Abstract: ‘Tjirbuk’ or ‘Tjirbuki’, as recorded by RM Berndt from the Yaraldi-Ngarrindjeri man Albert Karlowan around 1940, was the Ngarrindjeri name of a small wetland site at Blowhole Creek, probably the one at the mouth. In Karlowan’s version of the Dreaming story, this place is named after the ancestral being who created the coastal springs from Kingston Park south to the Wirrina cliffs. He could be seen here at ‘Tjirbuk’ as a bird catching fish, after emerging nearby from his long underground journey: see PNS 7.01/06 ‘Konggaratingga’ (Blowhole Creek).
