Curr 156i 'Nogoa River' appears to be from the Gayiri dialect, judging both by the given location, which matches that given by Tindale for Gayiri, and by linguistic evidence (Terrill 1998:94). From the Great Dividing Range south of Springsure north to Capella; west to Drummond Range; east to Comet and upper Mackenzie (Nogoa) rivers (Tindale 1974:173).
