    Good explanation but what of the pottery wheel? Indigenous Australians sure could’ve made use of that. Was that ever utilised by any of the various nations?

      A good question, but no there is no evidence of earthenware pottery. Pottery isn’t very useful when you’re mobile. It’s heavy and fragile. It’s easier to cut a coolamon from a tree, or carry a water bag made from animal skin, which also keeps the water cooler for longer. Making long lasting waste was not part of our culture.
