Versión Española Deutschsprachige Version

whirling a bullroarerBullroarers are thin tear-shaped pieces of wood attached to a long cord.

To use a bullroarer, spin it around it's own axis, holding the end of the string in a big circle above your head. If done correctly the bullroarer will produce an eerie whirring sound that carries well in the barren landscape of Australia.

It's said that bullroarers were used in secret Aboriginal ceremonies. Other people believe bullroarers were used as the Aboriginal 'bush telephone', to communicate over long distances.
