Walangari Aboriginal Desert Country Swap Badge


Australia is the driest country on earth and it is full of bush foods and bush medicines. My family have lived in this land since the beginning of time.

Designed by Walangari Karntawarra

Woven and Overlocked badge

8cm x 7cm

Scouts Australia have commissioned First Nation’s Artist – Walangari Karntawarra to design some original artwork for a series of blanket badges. 

Walangari's designs help tell the story of our nation’s first people. There are 4 badges in the series and 50c from the sale of each badge manufactured has been given in advance to the artist Walangari for his work. On top of this, the usual 10% of all badge sales also is shared between your Branch and Scouts Australia.

We are pleased to support Walangari and thank him for sharing his stories with Scouting and for allowing us to produce these works in the form of a woven badge for all our Scouting Members.

Each badge includes the printed story behind the artwork on the back of the badge.
