The Ngumbur language is an Australian language isolate spoken by just one person in Arnhem Land, northern Australia, as of 1981. By 2009 Ethnologue reported that it was extinct.

Ngumbur is not known to be related to any other language. It has been suggested that it may be related to the Umbugarla isolate, forming a Umbugarla–Ngurmbur language family, but it has also been tentatively included in a proposed Macro-Pama–Nyungan family.
