I stopped and collected the Boab nuts that you can find scattered at the foot of these trees if you’re lucky. I have a basket full at home.  The Aboriginal people of Australia carve them and it’s possible to buy some beautiful examples of Aboriginal Art as Boab Carvings.  I purchased two examples from an Aboriginal Arts Cooperative on a visit to the Kimberleys last year see http://www.waringarriarts.com.au for more information.
