Dappil (Dapil) is an extinct language of Queensland in Australia that appears to have been closely related to Gureng Gureng.

Tulua (Toolooa) may be another name for the same language; they are treated as such by Terrill (1998). However, the Dappil and Tulua were apparently different peoples, and it is not certain what the names referred to. For example, Toolooa and Dappil in Mathew (1913) correspond to Dapil and Gureng in Kite and Wurm (2004).[1]
