Tulampanga, or Alum Cliffs, was a place of particular social and spiritual significance to Aborigines because of the ochre to be found in that area of the Gog Range. Many tribes travelled to Tulampanga to obtain this highly prized material and for them this was a sacred celebration place. The connection of Aboriginal people with the Mole Creek area is thought to date back more than 10, 000 years, and the Pallittorre band of the North tribe was based around Mole Creek/Meander. To these early inhabitants, the Great Western Tiers were known as Kooparoona Niara, or Mountains of the Spirits, culturally significant as the meeting place of three Aboriginal nations

The tree it is on is Erythrina vespertilio variously called Bat's Wing Coral Tee, Grey Corkwood and Stuart Bean Tree. Aborigines use the seed pods to make into necklaces. The soft wood was used for coolamons or shallow dishes used by the women when gathering bush tucker.
