'Tulampanga' is the Pallittorre (local Aboriginal) name for the area. It was a place of particular social and spiritual significance to Aboriginal people because of the ochre found in that area of the Gog Range.  Many tribes travelled to Tulampanga to obtain this highly prized material and for them this was also a sacred celebration place.
