Some do and some don't. It all depends on if it was designed to come back.

The original purpose of boomerangs was to simply injure prey and stop them in their tracks. Returning boomerangs were largely used for herding animals into traps, or killing birds, and they had to be thrown with the correct technique - they did not just automatically return. Other boomerangs were used as tools for clearing ground, a shovel in cooking, digging holes, and even carving up a cooked animal.

What were boomerangs used for?

Boomerangs had a number of uses. Hunting boomerangs came in two forms. One form was non-returning, and these boomerangs were thrown with force at an animal, usually at its legs so that it was temporarily disabled, then killed with a spear. The other form was returning, and these boomerangs were used for herding birds or animals towards a particular location where they could then be caught easily. Boomerangs were also used in ceremonies and corroborees. Such ceremonial boomerangs had a significant role in retelling of the aboriginal 'Dreamtime' stories, and were painted in such a way as to render the main details of an event. These paintings were then rubbed off after the ceremony or corroboree, and reused on another occasion. These boomerangs might also be used as clap-sticks around a campfire. Boomerangs could be a practical tool, often used by the women as digging sticks.
