The Binigura were an indigenous Australian people of the Pilbara region of Western Australia.


The Binigura in Norman Tindale's calculation, held sway over some 3,100 square miles (8,000 km2) of tribal land, centered on the Ashburton River from Mount Tom Price to Kooline. Their northern boundary lay around the areas of Mount Amy, Urandy, and the start of the Duck Creek uplands. Their eastern confine is traced to the lower headwaters of the Hardey River, on the western edges of Ashburton Downs[1]
