Location information
Western Arrarnta country begins on the eastern boundary, at Jay Creek (Iwupathaka). From there the approximate boundary runs westward along the Heavitree Range. Mt Giles (Ltakarlipuka), Ormiston (Kwaarta Tuma), and Mt Sonder (Rrutjupma) are peaks in this range. The boundary includes the area of land close to the community of Mpangara, then it goes southward. The outstation Kulpitaarra is in Western Arrarnta country, as is the settlement of Areyonga. The southern boundary is near Ilamaarta, and runs through Irrpmangkara (Running Waters). It then runs towards the north east, back to Jay Creek. The communities of Wallace Rockhole and West Waterhouse are in Western Arrarnta country (David Roennfeldt with help from the community at Ntaria (Hermannsburg), pc November 2015 ).
