Turrubal (Turubul), also known as Yagara (Jagara / Jagera), is an extinct language of Queensland.

Other spellings of Turrubal are Turrbul, Turrabul, Toorbal, Tarabul; other names of Yagara are Ugarapul, Yuggarabul, Yuggera, Yuggarapul, Yackarabul.'


The four dialects listed in Dixon (2002)[3] are sometimes seen as separate Durubalic languages, especially Jandai and Nukunul; Yagara and Turubul proper are more likely to be considered dialects.[2]
