Wilingura (NT)
LocationBetween Cox River and Nutwood Downs; on Strangways River and upper Hodgson River; west to near Pine Creek (Birdum). There was formerly some confusion with the name that relates to the Karawa, a tribe that moved north to the coast about Tully Inlet on the Queensland-Northern Territory border in early contact times. Stretton's locality reference (l.c., p. 249, appendix, line 10) is evidently transposed with that mentioned on previous line.
