The Brindabellas and surrounds

The Ngunawal/Ngunnawal region included the Brindabella Mountain range and its streams and was a very important ceremonial area and food source for the local tribes people, particularly at the end of winter when a pilgrimage was made up into the ranges to its many caves which migratory bogong moths used as a breeding ground.

There are other caves used by the Ngunawal/Ngunnawal people from time to time - Wombeyan Caves - North of Marulan - and Carey's Cave at Wee Jasper - but none were as significant as Hanging Rock Cave in the Brindabella Ranges.
