The Pelican boomerang is a classic shaped boomerang that's easy to throw, glides through the air and hovers nicely on its return flight back to you. It's made in Australia and decorated with kangaroos, spirals, dots and flowers.

Flying your boomerang

It’s recommended throwing your boomerang when the wind is blowing light to moderate. To see how the boomerang flies; hover over the flight pattern sticker shown in the photograph.

  • Flight range is around 25 m
  • End to end, it measures 40 cm
  • Comes with throwing instructions
  • Australian made
  • Hand made
  • Made from marine grade Australian plywood; these boomerangs are tough and high performing

Will my boomerang return?

You need to follow the instructions and practice throwing. Additionally, if it’s too windy, then your boomerang is likely to fly where it wants and not back to you!

A bit more about boomerangs

Traditionally non-returning boomerangs were used to hunt and kill prey. Returning boomerangs were mainly used for having fun. Either way, when throwing a boomerang, it’s completely different to a frisbee. Instead it needs to be thrown almost vertically, with a lot of spin power behind it. Watching a boomerang return can seem like the magic of a bird soaring on the wind.

Boomerangs have been discovered across the world. From Ancient Egypt to India and even the United States where Native Americans in California and Arizona used non-returning boomerangs. Here in Australia, Aboriginal boomerangs were traditionally used for:

  • Hunting tools
  • Fighting
  • Digging e.g. food and then cutting it
  • Sport
  • Musical instruments e.g. music sticks
  • Making fire by creating friction through rubbing

Boomerangs were made of wood and came in all shapes and sizes and this is still the case. Boomerangs used in sport however are made of typically made of special plastics or aircraft plywood.

International deliveries

For international orders, you can choose your package to be delivered via Australia Post or DHL. 

Shipping charges are based on packaging, total weight, cubic size of your order and destination.

Australia Post

Economy Air Mail: it’s cheap but it’s also the slowest way to post and you can’t track your package. Australia Post says to allow at least 12 business days for delivery. If you live outside of a metropolitan area, then allow even longer.

Standard Air Mail: tracking is available to most countries. Australia Post estimates at least 8 business days for your package to arrive. If you live outside of a metropolitan area, then it will take longer.

Express International Post: tracking is available to most countries. Australia Post estimates at least 5 business days for your package to arrive. If you live outside of a metropolitan area, then it will take longer.

Where’s my parcel?

All sorts of things can hold up a delivery; customs delays, incorrect delivery address given, local transport issues, time of year e.g. Christmas, major events including extreme weather, even postal strikes.

The estimated arrival for each of the shipping options is just that, an estimate. Australia Post can’t guarantee when your parcel will arrive (and neither can we, Oz About Oz).

We will email your tracking number (for Standard Air Mail or Express International Post) so you check the progress of your parcel.

DHL

Milestone tracking is available to you. Further updates can also be obtained directly on the destination postal website as well.
