Emu Callers

Emu Callers were traditionally used by the Bundjalung, Kamilaroi and Wiradjuri tribes of New South Wales.

This instrument emits an emu like sound when hit on the end, that attracts other emus, making it a very a very useful tool for hunting. It was also used as a musical instrument during ceremonies with its sound emulating an emu?s call.

Made from a short piece of hollow wood, usually around 30 cm to 50 cm long, they can be plain or more often decorated with carving, painted designs or feathers.
