"...the woomera is distinctively Australian and is actually a lever to increase the speed at which a spear travels and the distance achieved. Made of wood, Spinifex resin with a hook end of animal bone, it acts as an extension of the thrower’s arm. The woomera is one of the most sought after of the Aboriginal artifacts by serious collectors."
