Summary

"The nomenclature of Tasmania is of a somewhat confusing character. It is only to be expected that English placenames should, as is the case throughout Australia, predominate. Mixed with these, however, are a number of names borrowed, more or less correctly, from the language of the aborigines of Tasmania, that isolated and exceedingly primitive portion of the human race which appears to have occupied Tasmania undisturbed for a long period prior to the coming of the Europeans." -- Historical introduction, by Thomas Dunbabin, page 5.
