Jumbunna is now an agricultural locality in the South Gippsland hills, 8 km south of Korumburra and about 120 km from Melbourne. Land was selected in this area from 1878 and the district became known by its parish name, Jumbunna East. According to Bunce's Language of the Aborigines of the Colony of Victoria (1859) Jumbunna is an Aboriginal word meaning to mention, language or conference. However, there was confusion with mails for the neighbouring parish of Jumbunna, and about 1890 the name of the district was changed to Moyarra.
