Korenggoreng (QLD)
LocationEast bank of upper Burnett River from Mundubbera north to Monto and Many Peaks. Not to be confused with the Goeng. In the first edition the tribal area was incorrectly mapped and included the territory of the Wulili who lived to the west. Mathew (1910) also mapped the Wulili area incorrectly as belonging to the Wakawaka. Gayndah is mentioned by Riley and Curr as within the tribal area but this is too far south, in Wakawaka territory.
