The Andakerebina were an indigenous Australian people of the Northern Territory.


In Norman Tindale's mapping, the Andakerebina were assigned tribal lands of some 12,000 square miles (31,000 km2), from Tarlton Range in the Northern Territory eastwards over the border with Queensland to the Toko Range. Their land took in the headwaters of the Field River, and the lower Hay River. Tindale suggested their southwestern limits lay approximately in the area of Lake Caroline.[1]
