WHY BULLROARERS AUSTRALIA WAS FOUNDED

HISTORY

After years of collegial conversation, collaboration on various societal initiatives, frustration with the lack of innovative approach to entrenched issues, David and Neal realised new pioneering training and employment pathways are required to increase the participation and success of Australian First Peoples and Veterans.

From our realisation, we understood there was only one option available to us, create our vehicle for change, to call out loudly to government, corporates and all Australia that we are here, we are solution focused, hear us, this is our solution.

And with that, Bullroarers Australia was proudly founded.

    WHAT IS A BULLROARER?

    The bullroarer is an ancient ritual musical instrument and a device historically used for communicating over great distances.

    To the Australian Aboriginal the bullroarer is believed to be the voice of great ancestral spirits. The bullroarer, a sacred object which was hidden from sight and used only during initiation rites and other important ceremonies.

    Only men who were fully initiated were allowed to use them; only the wisest men were able to understand what the voice of the bullroarer said. At the time of initiation, the candidate left the women’s part of the camp when he heard the bullroarers wailing in the distance.
