Location information
It appears to have extended southwards to near Walgett, and northwards into the basin of the Moonie River (Williams 1980: 3). Tindale (1974: 199) says that the territory did not extend this far north, but gives no basis for this statement. To the west the boundary fell between the Culgoa and Birrie Rivers, and extended eastwards almost to Collarenebri. Within this it is not possible to define an exact boundary between Yuwaalaraay and Yuwaaliyaay. There is, however, some evidence to suggest that Yuwaaliyaay territory was predominantly to the north of the area, and Yuwaalaraay to the south. in the area bounded by the Barwon and Narran Rivers north of Lightning Ridge (Austin, Williams and Wurm 1980:169). Goodooga-Narran River area (Ash, Giacon, and Lissarrague 2003:5). located upon a tract of country in southern Queensland, including Bokhara, Birrie, Narran, Ballonne and Moonie Rivers, and extend some distance within the New South Wales frontier (Mathews 1902:137) (Mathews does not seem to make a distinction between Yualeai (Yuwaalayaay) and Yuwaalaraay [D27] thus the area given by Mathews probably includes the area for Yuwaalaraay.)
