Location information
Leopold Range south of the gorge of the Isdell River; westward to headwaters of Robinson River; southeast to Richenda River; south only to Lennard River and Chestnut Creek (Tindale 1974). its southern boundary was south of the Lennard River and took in Windjina Gorge (McGregor in Sutton 1995:100). The general associations were to the Barker and upper Leonard River drainages. Eastward limits: The association of Unggumi with the Bell Creek area was confirmed in 2007. Southward limits: There was no positive informaton on the southern limits of Unggumi. However sources agreed that Mt Broome and Mt Behn constituted the eastern limits of Bunuba. Westward limits: Sources in 2007 stated that Kimberley Downs homestead was associated with Warrwa, but that Warrwa associations ceased immediately to the east of the homestead. Northward limits: There had been no detailed investigation of northward limits. There was general agreement that Mt Hart homestead probably lay within Unggumi country (Harvey ASEDA 802).
