Hi all

Just new here. I started to get interested in yowies because I went camping out near Mt Barney a few months ago and me and my mate heard a strange howl in the night and both said what was that!

I joked and said just a Yowie because I thought they were still just a myth until I decided googling them and found these audio reports. Now I'm more interested in these stores and being a panicky man it would normally stop me from doing all the hikes I have been doing but I'm still going now hoping to see one

Also went hiking at Mt Greville a bit over a month ago and saw a tree there completely stripped of its bark and the bark just lying there on the ground

I should have inspected more closely. This was on one of the main trails not somewhere remote

All I'm thinking though now is why we still haven't got one on camera. There are so many groups out there now actively trying to find them with all the right gear but still no clear videos etc or footprints? Has to happen soon though especially with the consumer drone technology we have now

Yeah I'm new too.

Unexplained damage to trees is what convinced me in part that they are real.

How do you uproot a tree with no mechanical or tool marks that is too deep in a grove to be towed/pulled out of place?

Probably a 5-7 year old radiata pine.

We have 2 videos here from different members , YowieDan and Troy . They're not great but they're the real thing in my opinion . They're tucked away but I'll try and find them for you .
We do have unidentified footprints as well , quite a few of them over the years . Here's one below .

Things can get quite political around here so , don't get too close to the fire , this hobby can consume your entire life and spit you out at the end . (lol)

It's a great question . I've heard of a farmer near Braidwood who planted a huge corner post and came out the next day to find it removed from the ground .

Lotsa cool audio interviews you may want to watch here . https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCJc4xu ... m_PxIhP66Q

Certain eucalypts shed bark like this regularly. It has nothing to do with 'being stripped'. Usually they will shed like this not long after heavy rain... had it been raining recently?

These 'animals' spend their entire lives in the bush and are obviously extremely intelligent. Those that occasionally manage to capture them on film are extremely lucky (or hoaxers).

Welcome to the forum BTW.

As Rusty says, this 'community' has its fair share of keyboard warriors and egos with well locked in preconceptions... but if you remain open minded and wear a thick skin, by all means start digging into the rabbit burrow.
Be warned, it is very deep with many off shoot tunnels... some that occasionally collapse. (cheers)

No no rain for some time before this. Was dry out there

Here's Daniel's and Troy's footage , not great but from reliable sources .





I would also say that there are people out there right now in Australia and the U.S. that are sitting on photo's and video's but won't share for various reasons .

My favourites are Dan's above from Blue Mountains, and I think he was with Katie Austin when she captured a dark/black one standing up. The other one is the Georgia (US) traffic cops on the dash cam, sprinting across the road.
