According to the Wonnarua dreamtime the Hunter Valley was created by the great spirit, Baime. Before Baime there was nothing, everything was sleeping. Baime awoke and created everything, the mountains, plains, rivers and every living thing.
The locals attest that Baime came down from the sky and put his foot down on top of Mount Yango (which made its shape flat). From here he told his story and taught his people about the land and how to live.
