Mungabareena was utilised by the Wiradjuri people for food, shelter, medicine, tools and weapons. Mungabareena was also the meeting place for other indigenous people, who would trade before going up into the high country to hunt for Bogong Moths. This is how the area gets its name as Mungabareena means “place of plenty talk” in the Wiradjuri language. It continues to be a significant site for the Wiradjuri and other indigenous people with it being the site of contemporary festivals.
