Location information
... somewhere south of Hermit Hill, in the Central Daly region (Capell 1963 as quoted by Tryon 1974). South of Hermit Hill, central Daly River (Tindale 1974). The general association was to the drainage of Doon Creek between Flood Hill and the Docherty Hills on the west, and extending to the level of Quartz Knob on the east. There was no precise information on the eastern limit of Marrimaninjsji associations in 2007 (Harvey ASEDA 802).
