Darambal (QLD)
LocationFrom Arthur Point on Shoalwater Bay south to Yeppoon, mouth of Fitzroy River, and Keppel Bay; inland to Boomer Range; at Marlborough, Yeppoon, Yaamba, Rockhampton, and Gracemere. Thirteen or more hordes are mentioned; one local group was on the Keppel Islands, another was said to belong to the Ningebal tribe. Other information suggests an extinct horde or tribe (Warabal) at foot of Boomer Range. Mathews (1914) seems to have used the name Tarambol in error for Kangulu on p. 435 of his paper; he gives the latter term for the same people. His map also is in error.

This information is reproduced from NB Tindale's Aboriginal Tribes of Australia (1974). Please be aware that much of the data relating to Aboriginal language group distribution and definition has undergone revision since 1974. Please note also that this catalogue represents Tindale's attempt to depict Aboriginal tribal distribution at the time of European contact.
