Comment
Comments: 
Schebeck's collection (SCHEBECK_B02) contains three hours of Garig. There is a discrepancy amongst the sources as to the location of Garig. Harvey places it in the middle of the peninsula but Berndt and Berndt (1951) place it in the west at Cape Don. Peterson and Tonkinson (1979) refer to movement, but they only say that Iwaidja had moved in to the Cape Don area, not where (or if) Garig had moved.
