Kwarandji (NT)
LocationDaly Waters district; west to about Illawarra Springs and Mount Wollaston; south to Newcastle Waters on Sturt Plain; not as far as Lake Wood. Stationmaster (1895) placed this tribe east instead of north of the Tjingili; another of his directions also is in error (see note under Kotandji). There was formerly confusion with a western tribe, the Korindji. Mathews's placing of the tribe 'south west' of the Tjingili evidently is an error of transposition for 'north west.'
