Wurreranginy (also known as Frog Hollow) is a small Aboriginal community, located 30 km south of Warmun in the Kimberley region of Western Australia, within the Shire of Halls Creek.


The original residents of Frog Hollow moved to Wurreranginy in 1981 from Guda Guda, near Wyndham, where they had gone to live after being expelled from cattle stations in the early 1970s. The people of Wurreranginy are Kija speakers with a mixture of adults, pensioners and children being present in the community.


Children of school age at Wurreranginy attend the Purnululu Aboriginal Independent Community School. The school enrols approximately 50 students in years K-10 and hosts an Early Learning Centre for children aged 0–3.
