Digging Sticks

Craft your own digging tool!

Getting started

  • Find a strong stick that fits well in your hand (Eucalyptus branches work well!).
  • Shape one of the ends of the stick by rubbing on some concrete or stone until it is pointy enough to dig with.


  • Only use your stick for digging – never point it at others
  • Always walk, never run, while carrying a stick
  • Keep the sharp end towards the ground
  • Always dig away from people
