LocationWestern slope of Normanby Range (Pine Mountain) to Styx; on Broad Sound north to Cape Palmerston along a narrow coastal strip; at St. Lawrence; inland to Coast Range; south to Marlborough (misprinted as Maryborough in Curr). Displaced hordes were present at Yaamba and Bombandy at the turn of the century but originally Yaamba was well south of their territory. They had extensive areas of mangrove flats fronting their shoreline and were familiar with bark canoes.
