Little is known of the Djalakuru, and the extent of their land is inferred as the residue of what is unaccounted for when one has mapped the other historic tribal territories. On this principle, Norman Tindale deduced that they held sway over about 600 square miles (1,600 km2), along the coastal areas from west of Goulburn Island at Angularli Creek roughly to the vicinity of Malay Bay near Mountnorris Bay.
