The gumnuts and quandong are made by local indigenous women who will make these by boring holes into the seeds. The whole family usually helps and this is done around the campfire or firepit while telling stories, listening to music and cooking roo tail or Damper bread in the hot coals.

The woven pendant is made by Rochelle Ferguson, using traditional weaving (as taught to her by her mother Ann Cleary-Farel) using native grass and raffia. This style of weaving is also used to make baskets, animals and other jewellery.
