Water Bag

Water bags were commonly made from kangaroo skin. However, they were sometimes also made of smaller animals, including rabbits, in more recent times. This bag is made from the tanned skin of a Bridled Nailtail Wallaby (Onychogalea fraenata) which is now extinct in New South Wales.

Australia is one of the driest continents on earth. Drought is common. Despite regular droughts, Aboriginal people have lived successfully in large parts of the arid inland regions of Australia for thousands of years. Over time they developed a sophisticated and intricate knowledge of their environment that was vital to their success in these conditions. There were two key elements to their subsistence strategies: knowledge of where and how to find water, and how to collect and make flour from a range of native plant seeds.
