LocationSouth of central Daly River; along Flora River to its junction with Daly River. Schebeck suggests that Ngen-gomeri is an important alternative version of the name. According to Falkenberg, a horde of this tribe named Ngargaminjin, was absorbed by the Murinbata in historical time suggesting considerable displacement in local distribution.
