Mudbura (Mudburra), also known as Pinkangama, is an aboriginal language of Australia.

McConvell suspects Karrangpurru was a dialect of Mudburra because people said it was similar. However, it is undocumented and thus formally unclassifiable.[1]

Sign language[edit]

The Mudbura has (or had) a well-developed signed form of their language.[3]
