That is a great find. Looking at where that's situated, it's no wonder there have been sightings; it's near a river that flows through the great dividing range and is 298 kilometres long.

I wonder if they still have someone dressed as a Yowie for that occasion? I couldn't find any info about it, although they seem to have a well organised tourist industry going on in the area.

(sarcasm alert)
Why is every one so ready to think that is a man in a suit? Are there no members who could not give some positive sighting credibility to this pic? Those children are dangerously close to the creature. Were they accounted for at the conclusion of the days festivities? Or have they become a statistic of missing persons? :lol:

what i find interesting is that the yowie ( whatever they may look like) was known well enough in the area for the residents to include a representation in the annual street fair.

I wonder if the yowie activity was much more intense in the early years, after settlement, and has been pushed out due to development.

What strikes me odd is that the name "Yowie Hunters" on front of the car.

Coincidence?

You have an eye for detail Dion; I didnt notice that. It looks like a wild pig's head set there on the board, and the guy on the truck has a telescopic sighted rifle, jeez.

Its been there all along Hillbilly, plenty of stories from the upper valley up till this day. Development there has been agricultural , its still quite rural and wild on its edges- Carrai Plateau to the South west, etc. I heard some strange stories from just to the south of here when I was recently there.

I reckon that is an excellent indication of changes in cultural influences over the years. I was raised around trucky yowie stories and it was fairly common truck stop banter as I remember. Juxtaposed to that I was chatting to an aboriginal mate of mine about them and a mate of his listened intently for over an hour. My mate told me later that when they left, his mate asked him what a Yowie was? I lauged m y a..e off. Preference for living in built up urban metropolises (metropoli?) has us losing some our own oral traditions and skills, such as blacksmithing and barrel making (just examples lol). Kind of sad and sort of dangerous to uninformed city holiday camper types and their kids.
