Steve Swartz's Warlpiri Bible Translation Home Page has more literature in Warlpiri.
I maintain a partially complementary list of linguistics references; and also lists of non-linguistic references, and of films and video recordings.

AIATSIS Library holds most vernacular literature in Australian languages, and can provide a bibliography of its holdings.

Note: The list is ordered by Grade, then by author.
This list can be also be viewed ordered by year or by author.
