Location information
Middle Mary river south of Mt Bundey (Top End Handbook). on the McKinely and upper Mary rivers (Harvey MS 2551). There was little precise information on the affiliations of Uwinymil in 2007. The Mt Bundey hill area, including Mt Goyder were associated with Uwinymil, and this area was on the northern limits of Uwinymil associations. Uwinymil was associated with the Mary River drainage upstream from the Mt Bundey hill area. There is no information as to how far south affiliations extended. The southern boundary is extrapolated from the ecological zone change from mostly plain country (Uwinymil) to mostly hill country (Wulwulam) (Harvey ASEDA 802). Awinmul: From Brocks Creek to Edith River; on the head waters of the Mary and Fergusson rivers (Tindale 1974).
