History/Origin The name Noonamah was applied by the Army in 1941, when the Military Board ascribed a series of names to new military depots and camps in the NT. Berrimah and Larrimah were two other names applied. Noonamah was taken from the language of the Wagaman Aboriginal people and means plenty of tucker and good things. Noonamah contained a number of Army wartime units and some wartime recreation events were held in the area.
