Boomerang – One of the most popular Australian gifts
The boomerang has been used for thousands of years in Australia by the aboriginal people as a hunting tool. A boomerang is thrown in the air (like you throw a frisbee), but unlike the frisbee, a boomerang returns to the place you’ve thrown it from.
A boomerang can be bought in most Australian gift shops.
Aboriginal artwork – One of the most beautiful Australia souvenirs!
One of the best and most unique Australia souvenirs are aboriginal artwork. The aboriginal people of Australia have a rich artistic heritage, which has resulted in some really cool artwork. They use their art to tell stories about the land, animal, spiritual landscapes and plants – which you really can see in the art.
If you want to buy an original artwork, the prices start around 500 AUD and go up to thousands of dollars. If you want to buy something cheaper there are always prints that you can pick up in souvenir shops in Australia.
If you’re traveling to Sydney and are looking for original artwork pieces, make sure to visit the Aboriginal Art Galleries, which sell and display artworks from the aboriginal people.
Macadamia Nuts are my favorite nuts – they’re simply delicious and make a great snack. They are healthy, and thanks to its high-fat content, they can reduce cholesterol levels and reduce the risk of heart diseases.

If you’re interested in music or know someone who is, then I’ve got a great Australia souvenir recommendation for you. A Didgeridoo is a 1500-year-old Aboriginal wind instrument that consists of a long wooden ”pipe” with a mouthpiece made of wax.
A traditional didgeridoo should be hollowed out by termites, but there are also factory-made didgeridoo’s that you can buy.
It might be a bit tricky to bring back home, but if you really want one or know someone who would love to have one of these, then it’s well worth the effort.
