A little history - Meeting place The site of the future capital was first occupied by two groups of Aboriginal people, the Ngunnawal and the Ngario. The large campsites found along the banks of the Molonglo indicate a substantial Aboriginal popu-lation in the area. In summer, the tribes left the hot plains of the region for the high country to the west, to feast on bogong moths. In 1820 Charles Throsby Smith was the first European to explore the area. Four years later, Joshua Moore took up 1000 acres (400 hectares) on the banks of the Molonglo River, a tributary of the Murrumbidgee River. He named his property Canberry, an Aboriginal word meaning ‘meeting place’. Another early European settler was Robert.
