"...the woomera is distinctively Australian and is actually a lever to increase the speed at which a spear travels and the distance achieved. Made of wood, Spinifex resin with a hook end of animal bone, it acts as an extension of the thrower’s arm. The woomera is one of the most sought after of the Aboriginal artifacts by serious collectors."

Hunting implements include the boomerang, woomera and spear.
