Information

The Angas Hills are a low rugged range of hills that commence at the Gary Junction Road and stretch 15 kilometres to the north east. The southern reaches are adjacent to Mount Webb. The northern reaches comprise laterite breakaways and some sandstone cliffs. This is Pintupi country and the area of the ranges near Mount Webb is where the last of the Pintupi emerged from the desert in 1984. Two members of the group, young men, were found by members of the Kiwirrkurra community near a well and tank (See Mt Webb Water Supply on EO Places). This contact led to the whole family group being located and bought in to Kiwirrkurra. The event received huge press coverage around the world.

12 months later, several members of the group, dissatisfied with town life, returned to their country. They were last seen at Labbi Labbi Rockhole by the historian Dick Kimber who assisted in returning them to country.
