Location information
On Yannarie River (Pindar Creek) above the edge of the coastal plain; southwest to Winning Pool and the north side of Lyndon River; east to Mount Hamlet and Maroonah; survivors now on Towera Station. They sometimes visited eastward to the Henry River but this was really Tenma territory (Tindale 1974). ... my data suggests [Purduna] were not further west than Nyang Station, and certainly not across the now north-west coastal highway (Austin in Sutton 1995:97). Contemporary location: Onslow (Dixon 2011:22).
