Want to see what Aborigine's use for spears, collecting their food and more, well visit here, and you will get a good insight into their lives.

If you have never seen Opal in its raw form, well, there are some lovely pieces on display, also some beautifully coloured gem stones.

Ever heard of the delicious tasting seafood, called "Moreton Bay Bug?"
Well, this "Bug" which is found on Australia's north coast is a fairly tasty, expensive delicacy served in many restaurants in Queensland and over Australia. Next time you are enjoying your seafood meal, then you will know what you are eating!

    Is the Moreton Bay Bug same as a yabbie ? I seem to remember collecting some in the sand to use for bait when fishing

      In some ways they are similar. They are quite expensive and unusual looking, I like them but not yabbies. It would have something else you used for bait, not sure what though.<br><a href=",1.htm" rel="nofollow" class="ealink" target="_blank">,1....</a>
