Items for purchase:

  • Aboriginal Art Ochre

Red, Yellow and White Ochre….collected with respect from the Australian Bush by Indigenous people.

  • 3×18 inch Returning Boomerangs

Throw the boomerang out towards the horizon not up into the sky. The boomerang will fly upwards by itself.

Having a boomerang return to the thrower and catching it is great fun and when you become very familiar with its flight you can attempt to catch it.

  • Quandong Seeds

Quandong seeds collected from the bush, for necklaces, earrings and jewellery.

  • Beeswax

Beeswax, (Not Native) But nice natural colour, moulds easily to shapes, great for Didgeridoos.

  • Bark Fibre String Making Kit and DVD

Native Hibiscus “Cotton Tree”bark fibre… It is VERY strong and is used for nets and dilly bags.

Taken from saplings deep in mosquito ridden swamps, the rough outer layer peeled off by hand, and then thinned and cleaned ready to make into string.

The pack comes with the DVD The Aboriginal Art of String Making which shows step by step how to make string from bark.

  • Emu Feather and Beeswax Kit

Emu feather and beeswax kit for hair, string and artefact decorations, head dresses.
