One of the most outstanding cases of excellence in Tracking can be related to Aborigenal Trackers, becoming legendary to the minds and eyes of the White People, whose first Colonies started established in the Isle in 1788. To them, Aboriginal Trackers did have such an inner, magic, misty power: they are able to follow a quarry just simply reading signs n the terrain. They developed this skill, as Boshimani, due to the necessity of gathering edible plants, hunting and survival of their tribal community. They handed down from their fathers to their children Tracking Art.

To speak easily, Aboriginal Trackers are able to track everything or everyone who passed through their lands: the knowledge of their environment translated herself into the reading of minuscule signs between the bushes, on sands and dry areas.

Due to their Tracking abilities, they started to be employed by Police and Australian Army in the research of missing people.

First case ever occurred in 1834, in Fremantle (Western Austrialia) where two trackers, named Mogo and Mollydobbin, managed to  track missing five-year-old boy in such a arid and harsh country for more than ten hours. Thanks to their Tracking ability, the little boy could get back home sound and safe. Thrirty years later, the Duff Children were tracked and found in the Victorian Wimmera, after being lost for nine days under a continuuos, heavy rain. The “black Trackers” managed to bring them home.
