Baraparapa (NSW)
LocationChiefly on southern tributaries of the Murrumbidgee River from above Hay, N.S.W., to Kerang, Vic.; at Cohuna, Gunbower, Brassi, Conargo, and across the river from Carrathool. Mathews, 1902 (Gr. 6487) may have transposed the positions of this tribe and the Wembawemba. In his 1904 paper he carries this tribal territory down river to Moulamein. He evidently worked with two separate hordes of this tribe. Beveridge (1884) lists his Boora Boora as though it was a tribe separate from this one.
