Location information
West from Caboolture to Gunundjin (At the junction of the Stanley and Brisbane Rivers), then northwest up the Brisbane River to Moore. From there it went northeast to the Jimna Range and then southeast through Mount Kilcoy and Villeneuve to Durundur. The bourndary then went in a line back down through Woodford to Caboolture (Winterbotham 1957 Gaiarbaus story of the Jinibara tribe of south east Queensland (and its neighbours) as quoted by Kite and Wurm 2004:5). the area bounded by the Garumngar to the south and the Dallambara to the north; the western boundary (with the Dungibara) was the Brisbane River, while the eastern boundary (with the Nalbo) was a line from Woodford to Caboolture (Steele 1984:254). ... starting from the junction of the Stanley and Brisbane Rivers called by them Gunundjin, which means hollow place, it followed the Brisbane River up on its east bank to Mooretown (Wung:ar), from there cut across country eastwards to the Jimna Range (dji:mna means a place of leeches). It then went in a south easterly direction, through Mount Kilcoy, Willeneuve, and Neurum to Durundur which in the native language means witchetty grub. From there it continued in an almost straight line to Cabloolture (cabul means carpet snake), and from there went straight west to the starting point (Winterbotham, MS 45, p. 9).
