Location information
... as we moved north they were increasingly mixed with sites of dual Mudbura/Jingili identity, particularly along Newcastle Creek and Bucket Creek. Only in an area north and north-west from Newcastle Waters homestead were there sites that were linguistically identified as Mudbura only (Sutton 1995:106). Armstrong River and upper Victoria River junction (n.n. ['Tjambutjambulani]), southeast of Pigeon Hole Station; south to Cattle Creek; west to the Camfield River and eastward almost to Newcastle Waters; north to Top Springs. Dwellers in the dense scrub country near and west of the place ['Murandjai] on the so-called Murranji Track (Tindale 1974).
