We won’t pretend to be the authoritive source of links to the boomerang world; Ted Bailey’s site is a good start for those interested in such a resource. Here we’ll focus on the Australian side of things… well, the ones that aren’t tourist crap!

There are a number of state and local boomerang clubs around Australia. Two of them have their own areas on this website. They are the Boomerang Throwing Association of New South Wales (BTANSW) and the Victorian Boomerang Throwing Association (VBTA).

    Hi Jacob

    There are many designers around the world but the key business in Australia, simply because the choice is very large, is Roger Perry of Rangs Boomerangs, Western Australia. All the boomerangs range from beginner to professional and are gauranteed to make a return flight.

    Here is the website address: http://www.rangsboomerangs.com

    Best of luck in finding a most suitable model.

    Hi, I was looking for help about the Australian slang style of language and discovered your page http://boomerang.org.au/wp/links/ I noticed you have various links to other Australian resources. I came across this website at http://www.australianslang.org and found it to be the most helpful out of the several websites I visited. I thought that it should warrant a mention on your page.

    Just had a Texan friend ask about a boomerang his friend purchased back in 1965 it has a seal on the back and says it was made by / Torres Strait Islander or Mainland Natives of Queensland Australia . Also looks like it sold for 39/- ( guessing that is 39 pence ) . It is very beautiful and looks genuine to me . Wondering where one would get it appraised please
