The Aboriginal People made baskets from dried tall grass that gets threaded in and out of itself. They also used the tall grass to tie up the stones to the sticks to make the tools. To make bowls they carved out a chunk of a tree and the cut it hollow. They made boomerangs doing the same thing. They used stones to crack open nut shells and berry seeds. The women’s main utensil is the ‘Digging Stick’ which is used to dig up witchetty grubs and insects to cook over a fire and eat ( no, there were no marshmallows)!
