Some Budjiti People also refer to themselves as the Paroo River People.
They are the traditional owners of country between Moonjaree Waterhole, located between Eulo and Cunnamulla, and Lake Bindegolly. Their country includes Hungerford, Lake Wyara, Lake Numalla, Lake Thorlinda and Cuttaburra Creek.
The neighbours of the Budjiti People are the Kullilli to the west, Mardigan to the north and Kunja to the east. To the south of the Budjiti People are the Barkandji People and to the southeast are the Murrawarri.
The explorer Thomas Mitchell travelled through the region from the Warrego River east to Cooper Creek in 1846. Settlement of the Budjiti lands through pastoralism followed in the 1860s. Pastoral stations established during this period within Budjiti country included Tinnenburra (1859), Eulo (1862), Currawinya (1862), Caiwarro (1862) and Dynevor Downs (1871).
