Jupangati (QLD)

LocationSouth of Batavia River on the Gulf of Carpentaria coast as far as Duyfken Point and Nomenade Creek (Pine River). Several hordes have been regarded as having the status of 'small tribes,' including the Wimarangga, on the north side of Albatross Bay, and the Batjana. Nggerikudi (and variations) was much used as a name for this tribe but later work suggests Jupangati is the better term.
