Jungkurara (QLD)
LocationBloomfield River; Weary Bay and south to Cape Kimberley; also in the vicinity of Spring Vale. This term appears to embrace the Yanyu of McConnel; ten hordes are listed by Hughes and there are indications of a possible eight others given by Parry-Okeden. Jungkurara possibly was a horde name originally but in 1938 informants of the tribe preferred it to any other.
