For thousands of years, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples have been naming places that were sacred or important to them.

This video is part of an ABC produced series named This Place. It tells the story behind one of these special places.

Mungabareena means a ‘special meeting place’ in Wiradjuri language. People would meet there on their way to Mt Bogong to collect Bogong moths and return to Mungabareena to feast on them.
