Wagoman (NT)
LocationAbout Dorisvale; southwest of Daly River; west of Ooloo; on Bamboo Creek; north to Douglas Homestead. J. C. LeSouef learned from Robert Judge of Daly River Crossing that the western hordes were known as the Wongakakaringa; he learned that the western boundary of the tribe lay at the Daly River Crossing near Mount Nancar. This seems to be confirmed by Stanner (1970 MS) who indicated Daly Crossing as being a meeting point of the Kamor, Wagoman, and Ngolokwangga.
