The Flying Boomerangs are the underage Indigenous Australian Australian rules football team.

The team has played tests against the South African national Australian rules football team[1] in both Australia and South Africa and more recently against an underage Papua New Guinea, the first international team to defeat them in Australian rules football.[2]

The team is named after the aboriginal hunting tool, the boomerang. The senior equivalent team is the Indigenous All-Stars.

Apart from representing Australia in international Australian Rules Football, the Flying Boomerangs team members have gone on to play in the Australian Football League including Austin Wonaeamirri, Leroy Jetta, Malcolm Lynch, Cameron Stokes, Isaac Weetra and Nathan Krakouer.

The Flying Boomerangs have been featured nationally in a documentary on ABC TV during their tour to South Africa.
