Kick, i actually just made a purchase through them about 2 weeks ago. Got it last weekend, but havent had an opportunity to try it yet.

Those boomerangs might be  for tourists,  but thet still look better then the modern ones u get

To add. A nice map.

In some ways they do have a kind of greater interest, but towards the history of Australian tourism than maybe the history of Australian weapons.

The next step of detective work would be tracking down the exact shed where a guy, late for several decades, spent his free time making boomerangs, selling them to the local tourist office.

True. They are still the stuff that you want hanging on your wall.
And if they can fool a website of primitive weapons enthusiasts, you can always tell your guests that they are original Kimberley war boomerangs used in the second Australian anti-colonial uprising.
