Wonaruah country takes in two large areas; Ninkinpa (Lake Macquarie) and the Hunter Rivers. This artwork shows how the two come together or Puwama (gather) for significant community and family events. This occurred in Wollombi, which was a central meeting place for the Wonaruah people, as well as other surrounding tribes. This area holds many significant Aboriginal sites and is still a place that Aboriginal people gather today.
