Didgeridoos are beautiful instruments which is believed to be over 40,000 years old.

There are many spellings for Didgeridoo, Didjeridu, Didjeridoo, Didgeridu, etc. The origins of this word are uncertain.


The didgeridoo originated in Arnhemland and the Djang, Ceremony place, is at a place called Minjilang on Croker Island. The Freshwater, Kunwinjku, people call it Muhggool and the Saltwater, Mallark, people call it Yidaki. These are the only people who can speak for the didgeridoo as they have the Dreaming and Ceremony for it.There are many made up stories and misconceptions about the didgeridoo, in particular about women playing and some other uses of the didgeridoo.


There is no problem with women playing the didgeridoo and usually people who say this have no right to speak for the didgeridoo as it is not in their Ceremony. Indigenous women do not play in ceremony, but  instead sing and dance whilst the men play the didgeridoo.
