Wakawaka (QLD)

LocationNanango north to Mount Perry behind the Coast Range; west to Boyne River, upper Burnett River, and Mundubbera; at Kingaroy, Murgon, and Gayndah. The small Kaiabara tribelet of the upper Boyne River may be a horde, but could be a detached portion of the Kabikabi. See additional notes under Kaiabara. Mathew (1910, 1914, and 1926) shows a large area in the west as belonging to this tribe; actually it is Djakunda and Wulili territory.
