This club is from the north coast area of New South Wales, Australia. The club has been carved from a single piece of wood. It has a distinct head that tapers to a point and a slightly curved handle. A row of 29 nails have been hammered into the head of the club and another 12 nails have been randomly placed above this row. The club was collected by Alexander Morrison in the late 19th or early 20th Century. It was acquired by the Australian Museum in 1979.
