Access to the Collections of the South Australian Museum will be closed from December 2023 while staff complete essential audit work. The closure is expected to last until mid-2024. Our galleries remain open to the public.
Location: Great Dividing Range, north nearly to Mareeba; south to Irvinebank and northern vicinity of Mount Garnet; west to Almaden, Koorboora (Kaboura), and Petford on the high ground. Formerly a rain scrub dwelling people; now on sterile and rugged granite ranges. Dixon suggests Almaden was out of their territory; my 1963 informant of the Wakaman tribe said their mutual boundary was at Almaden. Dixon postulates a prehistoric shift of this tribe westward out of the rain forest. I had come to the same conclusion during fieldwork with them.
