On display in this section are early boomerangs which were used for killing animals by the indigenous Yamaji aboriginals. They would hold them at one end and throw, knocking out or killing their target. The Spear was made of wood with the point made from a very hardwood which were hardened further by burning by fire then scraping down to shape a point. String used by the Aboriginals was made from the inside bark of Dagurrba, a red leaf fig.
