Didgeridoo


The sound of a didgeridoo is deep toned and haunting and is played at corroborees.

Madonna arrived in Sydney in 1993 carrying a didgeridoo.

Paul Cowell from Northwich, England, arrived in Sydney on July 29th, 1999, carrying a didgeridoo. He had just returned from a 6 month hike around Oz. The didgeridoo is the most popular souvenir of the backpacking fraternity, sorry girls!

Listen to the music of Yothu Yindi for the sound of the didgeridoo. Perhaps Rolf Harris will do a remake of his wobble-board version of Stairway to Heaven, playing the didgeridoo?
