In the Dreamtime, winds blew from all directions to Utopia, carrying Bush Plum seeds of the ancestral land. To ensure continued fruiting of this plant in each season, the Aboriginal people pay homage to the spirit of the bush plum and by painting plum seeds as well as, by singing, dancing and storytelling in ceremonies. Aboriginal people make very tasty bread from the paste of plum seeds.
