From eighteen thousand years ago, melting polar ice caps began drowning 25% of Greater Australia. On the Nullarbor up to 100 kilometres of coast was swallowed every generation. The Wadi Nyi Nyi Dreaming Story of the Pitjantjatjara tells of this great flood and how the Ancestral Beings stopped it - possibly the oldest religious story in the world. Similar Dreaming stories are found all around Australia.
