Local Heritage

For thousands of years the Australian Alps played an important role in aboriginal culture.

Tribes would converge on the Snowy Mountains from as far away as southern Queensland for ceremonies and to feast on bogong moths up on the mountain peaks.

The Thredbo Valley was one such meeting place for these gatherings and artifacts have been found in this area.

This suggests some tribes may have gathered or passed through this land before ascending into the mountains in search of the bogong moths.
