Wangkumara or Wanggumara is an Australian Aboriginal language of the widespread Pama–Nyungan family. It is sometimes classified as a dialect of the Ngura language. In 1981 it was still spoken by 4 members of the Wangkumara people around Cooper Creek, the Thomson River and the Warry Warry Creek, the town of Eromanga and the Nuccundra  in Queensland, Australia; today it might be already extinct.
Dixon (2002) considers Punthamara to be a dialect, Bowern (2001) as very close. Bowern also says that Ngandangara appears to have been "very close", though data is too poor for a proper classification. Karenggapa is either a dialect or an alternative name.
