Six rare south east NSW spear throwers thought to have been collected on the Lower Murray River and coastal NSW. These long narrow leaf shaped woomeras include examples with both separate wooden hooks bound to the shaft with natural resin and others with solid wooden hooks carved out of the shaft. Several bear museum markings. Each individual piece has been mounted separately to form a set.
