Australia as a nation is recognised around the world by symbols of Aboriginal culture.
In this exhibition, the Berndt Museum explores the idea of the boomerang - beyond a symbol of 'Australia' - to highlight its many uses and meanings. The exhibition asks audiences: 'How much do you know about boomerangs?'
