Location information
... south of the central Daly River, along the Flora River to its junction with the Daly River (Tryon 1974). The eastern-most [boundary] runs the length of the Fish river, from Kuluy (Collah Spring) northwards to its junction with the Daly river. The northern boundary [...] roughly follows the Daly-Peppimenarti road (which in turn follows the old Daly-Port Keats walking track) [...] East to west then, Ngen'giwumirri country extends just over one hundred kilometres, from the Fish river to the muyil swamp near Wudipuli. (Reid & McTaggart 2008:359). Contemporary location: Nauiyu and Peppimenarti (Reid & McTaggart 2008:359).
