First Nations peoples have lived in the area for at least 50,000 years. The Murrumbidgee River was a major source of food for the Wiradjuri people of the region. Gundagai was a major thoroughfare and river crossing place. Clan groups of Wiradjuri people from the areas of Narrandera, Wagga Wagga and Cootamundra would join the locals for ceremony, trade and to gather food.

In November each year people would pass through Gundagai on the way to the high country east of Tumut to feast on great aggregations of Bogong moths and to participate in ceremony.

The Cootamundra Domestic Training Home for Aboriginal Girls (also known as Bimbadeen), is located north east of the town of Cootamundra. The centre was operated and run by the New South Wales Aborigines Welfare Board from the times between 1911 to 1968 to provide training to girls ‘forcibly’ taken from their families under the Aborigines Protection Act (1909).

These girls were apart of the Stolen Generations, and were not allowed any contact with their families, being trained to work as domestic servants.
