Council has implemented strict protocols to ensure we comply with directions issued by government in relation to managing the COVID 19 risk. These protocols apply to our staff, our customers and visitors to our premises, and councillors alike. Some non-essential services have ceased altogether, others are still in operation but due to social distancing have added levels of complexity. Please be understanding that we will do our best to maintain services and help in what are unique and challenging circumstances.
Emu callers are a musical instrument and hunting tool made from a hollowed-out piece of wood, often decorated short. They are about 30 cm long and look a little like didgeridoos.
The emu callers were traditionally used by Aboriginal people when hunting. When striking the emu-caller at one end with the open palm it makes an unusual sound. This decoy attracts the bird away from its nest so that its eggs could be collected for food.
