The Australian Aboriginal Nulla nulla was used as a throwing projectile for hunting and varies in design from tribe to tribe. Nulla Nullas are constructed from Native Australian hard wood. This item is made from Australian black wattle timber.

He was a little boy when his parents were removed from their traditional homelands and sent to the Palm Island Aboriginal Reserve in North Queensland. In the early 1940`s they were moved again to Cherbourg in South East Queensland. Joe Snr. would often accompany his father when he was hired out to local farmers to work, mostly at cane cutting.
