Waluwara (QLD)
LocationFrom Roxborough Downs north to Carandotta and Urandangi on the Georgina River; on Moonah Creek to near Rochedale; southwest to Pituri Creek; at Wolga. Waluwara is the name of the language. Breen (pers. comm.) says the people he worked with do not recognize Maula, the name under which the tribe appeared in my 1940 work.
