Handpainted Aboriginal Art Boomerangs

Made from native Australian brigalow hardwoods and plywood our boomerangs are handpainted with Australian Outback or Aboriginal artwork and come in a fabulous range of colours. Each boomerang has original artwork handpainted by Aboriginal and other artists and is signed by the artist.

Contrary to popular belief, returning boomerangs were not used extensively by the traditional Aboriginal people. In fact most of the working boomerangs used by the Aboriginals were designed for traditional, ceremonial or hunting purposes and were not returning. It is generally accepted that the creation of the returning boomerang is believed to be uniquely Australian. Consider the flight of a good returning boomerang and you would have to agree that it is truly ingenious (a very similar system to the modern helicopter). The creators would have undoubtedly needed a strong understanding of aerodynamics, wind, lift and tip vortices to be able to shape the boomerang so it flew in the correct returning ark.
