Big Foot of the Bush – The Yowie

Australia has a creature that walks upright, is tall and powerful, covered in fur, and is the reported cause of various animal deaths. The creature sounds much like the sasquatch (aka yeti or bigfoot) for a reason – it is thought to be some type of relative of the creature. This reported “Australian Big Foot” is called the Yowie (also known in earlier aborigine stories by the name Yahoo, which means devil or evil spirit). Many consider the creature to in fact be real – in fact, before the European settlers came to Australia, the aborigines documented yowie sightings. Modern-day sightings of the creature still continue, with descriptions matching those of the earliest reported sightings. Indigenous ape or big foot?

One of the most popular areas for yowie sightings is in Australia’s Blue Mountains, west of Sydney where there have been well over 3,000 reported sightings.

Yowie Sightings. Reported sightings of “Hairy Man”

just a few of the thousands of sightings reported….

1870s – “Indigenous Apes” reported on by Australian Town and Country Journal; people on the lookout for the “Hairy Man of the Wood”

1979 – sightings of a gorilla-like creature disturbing livestock have truckers along New South Whales’ Newell Highway concerned.

1993 – Neil Frost sees something weird in the bush by his home and makes it his mission to find the creature. He and his neighbor start a search for the creature. They describe it as a “big hairy beastie” over 7 feet tall, weighing at least 600 pounds that walks with an odd gait. Reportedly 60+ of his neighbors have heard or seen the creature.

1996 – Peter and Belinda Garfoot are pulled over on the side of the road when they see a Yowie cross King’s Highway. They described the creature as very hairy, long arms, walking upright and approximately 7 feet tall.

2007 – Bateman’s Bay, Australia – a woman sees a creature at night she describes as walking upright, over 6 feet tall and covered in dark brown fur in the bush.

2009 – the Regional Children’s Choir is being bused back from an event. As the buses approach Odell’s Crossing, the driver sees a large hairy creature in the trees. She reports it as a “wild-looking” hairy figure which resembles the yowie. The second bus driver confirms seeing something or someone near the bus, but will not comment further.

    @Sorath “Rayne” Coraxo:
    I’m sure the stranger side of you can’t be too bad. Her name is blue when we reply to her… in our message it’s blue >.< lol

  6. You know it’s crazy. I’ve been reading back to 2007 and 2008 when i used to be the bullheaded lonely wandering Rayne Warrior. I feel a little ashamed of how I behaved when I was 16-17. It’s so odd, to see how much i have grown spiritually since then. To see how ignorant I truly was, and probably still am once I look back again in a year or two.

    I think the Bunyip is more interesting than the yowie… mostly because it’s a water creature, and is a bit more unique. And weird.

  12. hmmm… Bunyip sounds cool!

    I don’t know about the rest of you, but I am sure there is no yowie, or bigfoot, or werewolf anywhere in any forest.

  19. Lunar says:

    Sorath, that is what your younger years are for is it not? To grow and learn?

  20. WaterfallWolf says:

    Lunar and Sorath You have any advice on the spiritually side of it all.

    Feel like I have walked here before.
    I wander the earth forever more.
    I cry the tears of the past.
    Fearing to be the last.
    Memory fades.
    So do I.
