The Nargun and The Stars is a children's fantasy novel set in Australia, written by Patricia Wrightson and illustrated by Robert Ingpen. The book was the winner of the 1974 Australian Children's Book Council Book of the Year Award.

The plot involved a modern day boy coming to live in a remote Australian valley where he discovers a variety of ancient Dreamtime creatures including the ominous stone Nargun. The Nargun is a creature drawn from tribal legends of the Gunai or Kurnai people of the area now known as the Mitchell River National Park in Victoria.

The book was made into a mini-series for television in the 1980's, the screenplay adapted by Margaret Kelly.[1]
