Warluwarra is an extinct Australian Aboriginal language of Queensland.

Classification[edit]

R. M. W. Dixon (2002) places Warluwara in the Southern Ngarna subgroup, along with Wagaya, Yindjilandji, and Bularnu. This is in turn related to Yanyuwa.[citation needed]

Sign[edit]

The Warluwara had a developed signed form of their language.[3]
