Nunggubuyu is an Eastern Arnhem language spoken in Numbulwar in the Northern Territory of the Australia. According to the 2016 there are 272 speakers of Nunggubuyu. There are perhaps another 400 people who speak Nunggubuyu to some extent. The language is also known as Wubuy or Yingkwira.
Few children speak Nunggubuyu, however the Nunggubuyu community started a revitalisation programme in 1990 which involves elders teaching their language to children in the local school.
