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


The Awinmul1's traditional lands covered an estimated 1,800 square miles (4,700 km2) of land from Brocks Creek to the Edith River and the headwaters of the Mary and Fergusson rivers.[1]


A long and intense drought struck their region in the early 20th century, resulting in a drastic reduction of the Awinmul. The remnant of survivors were subsequently absorbed by the Wulwulam.[1]
