What is the origin of the boomerang

Who invented the boomerang?

The origin of the boomerang is unclear. However, popular knowledge is that the boomerang originated in Australia and used by the aborigines as hunting and fighting weapon.

History pinpointed Australia where the boomerang was first sighted or documented, which is about in December of 1804.

The Europeans who witnessed an aborigine throwing the boomerang with such skill and dexterity as to injure an opponent watched in awe as the deflected boomerang, after hitting the man, flew still farther.

Further evidence was found that non-returning boomerang throw stick or kylie was used by the ancient Egyptians, American natives and natives of southern India. In the modern times the boomerang was adopted mainly as a recreational and sports item.
