LocationLower Severn River, Fraser Creek, and Ashford. This may have been only a large hordelike group, but its range is of tribal size for the area and the -bal suffix has precedents to the east and north. These people were perhaps the Yukumba (Jukambal) speakers met by Ridley a day's journey north of Warialda in 1855.
