1. History

The district was created on 13 April 1928, and was defined in the Government Gazette:

Landgates GEONOMA database records that the name was suggested by Assistant Chief Draftsman, G. W. Paris, who stated it was an Aboriginal word meaning "waterhole". The database also notes that on 23 January 1987, the district was extended west to 126°E longitude; however, this was not gazetted.
