Location information
Eastern side of Tonkinson River (Glasgow 1994 Burarra-Gun-nartpa dictionary ) traditional territory - inland from and south of the settlement of Maningrida. Its western border lies along the Tomkinson River. To the north, bordered by Ndjebbana country and Nakkara. In the east, it meets Burarra country just short of the Bitjuwu/Binyjawa swamp, and the Gurr-goni/Burarra border runs south roughly in line with the Cadell River. To the south lie the lands of the Kuninjku speaking Kardbam clan (Green 1995:3-4). The general association was to the floodplain of the Tomkinson River from just behind the coast, but not as far south as the road to Oenpelli, and to the higher country eastwards to the western side of the Cadell River (Harvey ASEDA 802).
