Aboriginal Art

The Aboriginal people are renowned throughout the world for their beautiful descriptive artwork. They painted on many different canvases including rocks, inside caves, on tree bark, timber, boomerangs, spears and also themselves. Ochre pigments were commonly used for traditional indigenous artworks. Ochre pigments come from rocks rich in iron oxides. These ochre pigment paints were made by grinding these rocks and mixing the powdered rock with blood or saliva.

Indigenous Hunters

The aboriginal people traditionally hunted with handmade boomerangs and spears. Boomerangs are fashioned from curved sticks and designed to return to the person who throws it.
It is a sign of respect and a great honor to be presented with a boomerang by an aboriginal family. They often hunted kangaroos for food, but many tribes lived near water and also ate fish seafood and native berries, roots and insects like witchetty grubs.
