Macadamia
For thousands of years Aboriginals feasted on these nuts. Fallen nuts were collected in dilly bags and taken to feasting grounds. Artefact stones with a round hole for holding the nuts have been found alongside a larger ‘hammer’ stone used for cracking the nuts. Oil was also squeezed from the nuts and used as a binder with ochres and clay for face and body painting.
