Jagalingu (QLD)
LocationHeadwaters of Belyando River south to Avoca; north to about Laglan; west to Dividing Range; east and south to 169 Drummond Range. Howitt's 1904 sketch map indicates that his attribution of 'Wakelbara' in his text to 'West of the Great Dividing Range' was a slip for 'east.' Wakelbara may be a horde of the Mian rather than the Jagalingu tribe and placed too far south by Howitt.
