The Ngurawola were an indigenous Australian people of the state of Queensland.


According to Norman Tindale, the Ngurawola's tribal lands covered some 4,400 square miles (11,000 km2), centered around Arrabury and the Durham Downs. Their southern boundaries lay around Lake Marrakoonamooka, while their western limits were near the Coongie Lakes.[1]
