Kangulu (QLD)
LocationDawson River south to Banana and Theodore; northwest to Mackenzie River and near Duaringa and Coomooboolaroo. East to Biloela, Mount Morgan, Gogango Range, and the upper Don River; southeast to Thangool and the headwaters of Grevillea Creek. In the 1940 edition a western tribe, the Kanolu, was incorrectly mapped along with this one. It will be noted that their vocabularies have little in common. Two names mentioned by McIntosh, namely Maudalgo and Mulkali, may belong to one or another of these tribes, but no data have been found to enable them to be applied.
