This slender and light weight hunting boomerang or non-returning throwstick was made out of a very light colored hardwood in South Australia. This boomerang was probably made in the 1960s and it is decorated with art that is typical for boomerangs that were made by Aborigines and then sold via the Yalata Mission in South Australia. Both surfaces are smooth (where there is no art) and it appears to have a coating of varnish. There is no damage. This throwstick is possibly strong enough to throw, but it would be better to display it. Length = 57 cm ; Weight = 116 gm
