|Location||Horsham and Upper Wimmera River; south to Morton Plains and Grampians, west to Mount Arapiles and Mount Talbot; east to beyond Glenorchy and Stawell; north to near Warracknabeal and Lake Buloke. Their term for man was ['darua]. Tribal movements were toward the south, reaching almost to Casterton and Hamilton at time of first white contacts. Lake Buloke was a center where members of several tribes met for ceremonies. Stone (1911) gives 'Dallundeer' as the Wembawemba name for this tribe; this is a locality name (now Toolondo). His Mount Albert locality is probably Mount Talbot. The track to the stone ax mine near Harrow passed through Toolondo.|
