This large hunting boomerang or non-returning throwstick with a lenticular cross-section was collected in the Northern Territories in the 1950s. The shape is very similar to the Central Desert hunting boomerangs with extended range. The wood is very heavy and both surfaces are rough with metal tool (file or rasp) finishing. There are a couple of splinters and natural wood defects, but this boomerang is in very good condition and is probably strong enough to throw if you are careful. This boomerang is from the Brother Brian Thomas estate. Length = 76 cm ; Weight = 528 gm
