Wardu and Bulgura

Wardu and Bulgura

The Eagle, Wombat and Sea-Lion are important totems for the Wirangu people. One story explains how the Sea Lion came to be found lying on the rocks, a sight familiar to visitors at Point Labatt. The Sea-Lion (Bulgura) had a brother, the Wombat (Wardu). One day, the Wombat went for a swim, and changed places with the Sea Lion. From that day, the Sea Lion came up onto the land, and may still be seen lying on the beach and rocks of Point Labatt.
