Could anyone help a correspondent from Mount Gambier who is attempting to trace the origins of a number of words. Here is Ronald Thomson's request:

Dear Sir or Madam,

I write in hope that you may be able to assist me fill in several gaps that still remain unanswered, to complete a project placed before me some twelve months ago. My difficulty lies with twelve names, of which the meanings are known, but regretfully the nations or tribes that used the words have yet to be uncovered by this writer. Some other researchers suggest that many, if not all the words come from Queensland. They are

KYWONG
WILLAWA
RITANA
TARANDI
OOLNA
KOWINE
GUMBIRRA
KALAPAR
TALLARA
DANDALOO
DEREEL
WOLLONGBAR.

If it is possible to find only one nation or tribe that used any of the words, then to some extent an answer would be arrived at. Any help you are able to provide would be gratefully appreciated.

Yours sincerely,
Ronald L Thomson.
