Location information: 
Mudburra: The general associations of Mudburra extended east from the Victoria River. Westward and southward limits: The Camfield River and Cattle Creek drainages were associated with Mudburra. The Winnecke Creek and Hooker Creek drainages were associated with Kartangarurru. Top Springs was associated with Mudburra, but Killarney homestead was associated with Karranga. Northward and eastward limits: The northward and eastward limits appear to have been negatively determined. Mudburra affiliations extended approximately to the area where there evident drainages heading north or east. Areas with such evident drainages did not have a Mudburra affiliation. Murranji homestead was associated with Jingulu (Harvey 2009) (Harvey's Mudburra appears to be equivalent of Eastern Mudburra in this database).
