Geographical coverage

From the council's website (see link below):

"The Council is responsible for providing services to Yarralin, Lingara (40 km from Yarralin), Pigeon Hole (98 km from Yarralin), Yinguwinarri (131 km from Yarralin) and Kulumanbulani (20 km from Pigeon Hole).

"The population of the communities is approximately 550 people. Naringman people are strongly represented at Yarralin, the Munburra people at Yinguwinarri and the Bilandala people at Pigeon Hole. While Pigeon Hole and Lingara contain representatives from several family groups, smaller family groups dominate Yinguwinarri and Kulumanbulani. There is a commonality between the constituent populations and they all share a common regional history to the main community at Yarralin."
