E076965 club, wood / metal, northern New South Wales, southern Queensland, Australia.

This wooden club is from the northern New South Wales, southern Queensland area of Australia. The club has been carved from a single piece of wood. It has a straight handle with a pointed base. The diameter of the handle gradually increases towards the top to form the club's head. The head is studded with 5 rows of nails. Above the nails the head tapers to a point. The club was collected by Alexander Morrison in the late 19th or early 20th Century. It was acquired by the Australian Museum in 1979.
