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


The Inawongga, in Norman Tindale's estimation, had about 3,600 square miles (9,300 km2) of tribal territory, living in the area around the Hardey River and as far south as Rocklea. Their southeastern extension ran along the upper Ashburton River from Turee Creek to the Angelo River, and north of Mount Vernon Station.[1]

Running clockwise from due north, their neighbours were the Kurrama to their northwest, the Panyjima north-northeast, the Mandara due east, the Ngarlawongga to their southeast, the Ninanu directly south and the Tjururo on their western flank.[2]
