Djankun (QLD)

LocationFrom Mount Mulligan and Thornborough south to Almaden; east to Dimbulah near head of Walsh River; west to Mungana. Mathews listed this tribe twice under two different versions of the name. Richards (1926) gave a wrong picture of the size of the area occupied by this tribe-he probably meant miles square instead of square miles but was still in error. The term Mutju was given one as an alternative for Djankun.
