Warungu (QLD)
LocationHeadwaters of Burdekin River, southeast to near Charters Towers and southwest along the Clarke River; west to the Dividing Range; east to the inland foot of the Coast Range and to the big southern loop of the Burdekin. Very little is known of these people and it is possible another tribe occupying a portion of this area has escaped record. The suggested Warrialgona equation is doubtful.
