Bogong Moth Migration

Traditionally, each year the Indigenous people of southern New South Wales and northern Victoria would meet at Mungabareena Reserve to perform ceremonies, exchange goods and discuss tribal lore. They would then travel to the high country to feast on Bogong Moths.

"I am a proud Wiradjuri woman. Teaching my culture has always been a part of me and I’m passionate about passing this culture on to my children. I think it is important for our people to know where we came from, to learn from our ancestors, Elders and to pass this knowledge on to our younger ones."
