didjes, didjes everywhere!didgeridoos, didjeridoos, didjeridus...We have a very large didgeridoo site for you to explore...

Some visitors spend more than ten hours at a time checking it out - no kidding!

But not everyone has so much time to spare - at least on their first visit.

These are a few suggestions to help you get the most out of your time here.

Before you dive in...

an unusually huge bell didjThere are currently more than 200 didgeridoos in stock.

Each didgeridoo appears on one or more department pages.

On a department page, you can click on thumbnail photos of each didj (or the 'More Info' links) to view individual product pages for each didjeridu.

On each product page there's additional information about the individual didjeridoo - and in most cases a sound recording (we provide downloadable MP3 files). On product pages for all painted didjes, you'll also find a link to an enlargement image - and occasionally a detail as well.

All concert class didges are accompanied by their individual MP3 sound files - so you can hear the sound of the didj you are looking at. In most cases, we provide two copies of the same MP3 sound file - one better quality, the other faster loading.

We suggest you choose the better quality option unless your internet connection is slow, in which case the faster version may be useful when listening to a didj the first time.

For most surfers, listening to the MP3s should be as easy as 1, 2, 3...

  1. Click on the sound file link (it'll look like this): MP3 sound file link - this one is not functional!
  2. Wait a few seconds while the file downloads
  3. Enjoy ...

However, if you do have any difficulties - or want to find out more about didgeridoo sounds and listening to MP3s on your computer - check out our Soundscapes page.

David, from the Gunninggurr people, one of our didj artistsWe only sell authentic Australian didgeridoos crafted by Aboriginal Australians

Every didgeridoo we sell is a genuine termite-hollowed didgeridu made by an Australian Aboriginal craftsperson.

Why do we mention this so prominently?

Well - many, probably most - Australian didgeridoos on the market were harvested and crafted by non-Aboriginal people. These operators often don't bother to seek permission from local Aboriginal Elders, overcut native woodlands in a quick grab for 'sticks' and have the didjes painted by non-Aboriginals

Many shops in Australia, overseas and on the web sell these didjeridoos - knowingly or unknowingly - as authentic Aboriginal art.

more didgeridoos - we have the largest selection on the webIronically, just as the didgeridoo enjoys unprecedented popularity on the world musical scene, within Australia cultural theft denies many benefits of the didj industry to Aboriginal people - and over-exploitation of the natural resource base threatens the sustainability of this traditional craft.

A growing number of people prefer not to buy Australian didgeridoos unless they're sure they've been created by Aboriginal craftsmen and women. What about you?

Tips to help you shop

At this point, you may want to go straight to the didjes!

You can use the 'jump list' below to go straight to one of the departments - in this case organized mainly by price...

Check out our boomerangs!If you'd prefer to see the full range of department options presented before you as a set of links, with links to other useful related pages, the Shop Front is the place to go. Incidentally, the Go Shopping button at the top of the window is always available to return you to the Shop Front with one click.

Organized by department

All the didjeridoos are arranged within departments. There are two different kinds of departments - the first arranged by price, the other by type. Some didjeridoos are located in only one department; others may be in two. If you are an experienced didj fan, you'll probably prefer to use the type departments, If you are not, we recommend that you browse through the dollar departments.

Not just didgeridoos!

All the artifacts for sale - boomerangs, clap sticks and bullroarers - as well as our entire range of didgeridoos - are crafted by Aboriginal artists.

Ordering is simple - just click on the "Add to Basket" button next to the item you want to buy. It looks like this: The Didjshop's Add to Basket button - this one is for show only!

You can select a few items - or just one. It's up to you.

We can supply items listed above in multiples if you wish - but of course, each didgeridoo is unique - so don't order the same didj more than once!

You can always remove items from your shopping basket later - and make other adjustments to your order.
