Comment
Comments: 
According to Oates and Oates (1970:159), 100 words of the Moreton Bay dialect (Lang 1861) could be data on this language. Apart from that, there appears to be no linguistic data on this language. Tindale (1974) lists Bujibara etc. as an alternative name of Kaiabara E22.

Location
State / Territory: 
QLD
Location information: 
East of Esk and north of Brisbane, Q. (Oates & Oates 1970:159). The site [Gugundair] was "a few miles from Barambah", and in Bujiebara territory. The exact location is hard to determine, but it would have been at least ten kilometeres from Barambah in order to be in Bujieberra territory (Steele 275 - 276).
