Narran River, a watercourse of the Barwon catchment within the Murray–Darling basin, is located in the Southern Downs district of Queensland and Orana district of New South Wales, Australia. The river rises south west of Dirranbandi, as a branch of the Balonne River in Queensland, and flows generally to the south and south-west, before reaching its mouth at Narran Lake, between Brewarrina and Walgett in New South Wales; descending 61 metres (200 ft) over its 299 kilometres (186 mi) course.

We also have Williams' (Yry) recording of ngaarrigulay 'over here, this way', and Austin's (Gry) reconstruction from written sources, ngaariyalana 'this side of. This is obviously not conclusive; there is some evidence for an interpretation of Narran (Nharran or perhaps Nharrang) as 'small', and some support for a kind of deictic 'here/this side'.

The perception was that Indigenous counting systems were fairly simple and consisted of one, two, three, four, five, mobs or as in the image above ‘many’.

The origin of the Narran Lake Australian folktale

The origin of the Narran Lake Australian folktale. Old Byamee said to his two young wives, Birrahgnooloo and Cunnunbeillee, "I have stuck a white feather between the hind legs of a bee, and am going to let it go and then follow it to its nest, that I may get honey. While I go for the honey, go you two out and get frogs and yams, then meet me at Coorigel Spring, where we will camp, for sweet and clear is the water there. The wives, taking their goolays and yam sticks, went out as he told them.
