Location information
... on the Staaten River, in the south-western part of the Cape York Peninsula. Galbraith Station and northern bank of the lower Staaten River inland to Old Koolatah, north to Inkerman and middle Nassau River (Tindale 1974) West bank of Norman River, close to its mouth (Oates 1975:296) Guandhar - Oates’ information (West bank of Norman River, close to its mouth (Oates 1975:296) is grossly wrong: I’d put it roughly in the ‘Inkerman Station area, between and a bit beyond the Nassau and Staaten Rivers’, and probably extending to the coast (Black 2007 p.c.)
