The Didgeridoos we use during our workshops are authentic and naturally hollowed out by termites. No living trees or animals have been harmed or damaged in the process. We use quality Red Box and Yellow Box Eucalyptus logs for our workshops; they are seasoned and ready to be carved.

All equipment, tools and safety wear are supplied.
