Mamungkukumpurangkuntjunya Hill is a hill in South Australia. It is in the Everard Ranges, about 22 km south-west of Mimili. The name consists of several Pitjantjatjara words made into one. It roughly means "where a devil urinates" (a mamu is a bad spirit). It is the longest place name in Australia.[1][2]
