This post is about the gentler option, the Kings Creek Walk....and, no it wasn't my hat; way oversized for my head, and I'm pretty sure it was a permanent fixture...
information gleaned from this signage is quoted below
Kings Creek is a very special place for the Luritja Aboriginal Traditional Custodians of Watarrka. They know it as Watarrka Karru (karru means creek), a ceremony place on a native cat (quoll) dreaming track. In the Dreaming, native cat men, kuningka, travelled from the southwest along this creek and had important ceremonies at the foot of the waterfall.
Living in a river bed isn't protection against severe droughts. During dry times, River Red Gums can drop limbs and most of their leaves to be able to survive. Hollows left by falling limbs provide dwellings for many animals.
