Hey everyone! Does anyone know if there have been any sightings or anything in the Rochedale area? or Springwood or anywhere CLOSE to Rochedale?
THANKS!

There have been reports from the Daisy Hill Forest area but they were quite a few years ago.

I have had reports of a large black cat in that area.

Details: Bigger then a feral, smaller then a big cat. Apparently it doesn't fear going into the back yards which back onto the forest.

So how often does this big cat come out? does anyone know what it is? do we even HAVE any big cats in Australia...when you say big cats I think of Jaguars and Cougars etc...but mostly Panthers..:p

I would strongly advise you to visit the cryptozoology part of this site when it is in working order.

Other wise do a search on big cats in Australia, I think you will be suprised.

Chances of an unknown, unproven cryptid roaming the (busy) streets of Rochedale or Springwood are about as low as you could go. What was once part of the fruit and vege bowl of South East Qld is now a subdivision haven of mortgaged to the hilt 40 somethings.
Not likely my friend..

That whole Daisy hill / Rochdale area links up with the vast Mount Cotton woodlands.
This alone makes it a strong prospect !

This made me laugh out loud. And now I know where "Rochedale" is .. had never heard of it!

Meantime, it's quite extraordinary to think people are actually hunting for 8' tall monkey men in the 'burbs, isn't it. Even the leafy 'burbs, with green corridors to larger expanses of bush, are so unlikely it defies comprehension. Seems a terrible waste of research hours/money. But that's just me, and I know some would disagree. As far as I'm concerned, if it's not deep inside or on the trackless fringes of at least 10,000 acres of trackless forest, it's futile. Even then, that 10,000 acres should be well away from suburbia.

That's a pretty isolated patch of bush, and it's heavily transected by roads and human activity. It's not huge either, in comparison to NSW forests. The chances of a breeding population of massive hairy mammals surviving there at all are spectacularly remote, much less surviving and remaining undetected. With respect :)

Slacks Creek had a Report in the 80's, Carina in the 90's, Daisy Hill and out towards the Redlands from the late 90's until recently. I had my own encounter at Daisy Hill while investigating another Report from the location. Buccan, Logan Village and Ormeau are not far away in the scheme of things. I'm sure it was all linked at some stage.

Take a late afternoon, midweek stroll through one of the parks in the Mt Cotton area .
The feeling is unmistakable !!

A young guy that I know has always reported strange stuff on his parent property at Mt Cotton, Kangaroo's being found mangled or they looked a little eater but could be dogs......but Mt Cotton is a vast area lost of things live in the bush down there......anything is possible I guess

Eastern temperate Eucalypt forests - what is arguably the best habitat for a large omnivorous mammal - cover around 220,000 square kms, mostly in NSW, and much of it interconnected. Surely a better prospect than 17kms from downtown Brisbane?

Loved that album... listened to it a million times growing up. Some great songs in it, not to mention the dramatic voice of Richard Burton... " one... loomed above Big Ben!"

Hey, Guest, nobody has asked yet, but i was wondering if you posted your original question here because you had seen something? Or was it just out of curiosity?

kind regards

Me too..😊.. My olds had the vinyl, and us kids would thrash it, we called it the "Thumper" for some weird reason..lol
Me and a mate even saw the live show some years ago at Homebush stadium, Shannon Noel was a cameo performer playing Nathaniel..😂🤣
It was a bloody good show though, brought back many good memories..

My daughter resides on a farm out at Rochdale the lands adjoining her acreage are heavily timbered and despite the relative close proximity to Brissy harbour a real potential.
We dont know what these creatures are capable of or exactly where they live .

Just soooo unlikely..
I grew up in Mt Cotton and lived in Rochedale for a decade. Rochedale backs onto Burbank/Sheldon.
Sure it’s got some timbered areas but 2018 in the burbs is such a waste of time....

Its easy to think Yowies couldn't possibly be so close to the burbs..
I was listen to bigfoot crossroads once and Tim Coonbo Baker was talking about the time he reluctantly investigated an area in New York city that had its share of reports over the years..
He was shocked upon arrival with the amount of sign around and concluded that there was indeed a small population there at the time..
