Nimanburru is an extinct Western Nyulnyulan language formerly spoken on the eastern shore of the Dampier Peninsula in the north-west of Australia. Archival records exist in the Australian Institute of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Studies and some of the material in Hermann Nekes and Ernst A Worms' Australian Languages is from the language.
