Size of the pilliga and migration

Unread post by IrishYahoo » Fri Apr 28, 2023 4:56 am

When I first saw the Pilliga on the map I thought it looked rather small until I compared it's size to other places.

It's size is immense and I can see how groups of larges primates could live there undetected.
But to avoid inbreeding would it be possible for individual Yowies to migrate back and forth to places like the Blue mountains undetected?

It's a huge area check out the little township of Pilliga on maps it is situated close to the centre of the Pilliga Forest. From Google: What is the history of Pilliga Pop. 207

The place name is derived from an Aboriginal word for "swamp oaks". The Pilliga post office opened on 1 January 1867. In 1902 the Pilliga artesian bore baths were constructed as a permanent town water supply. These baths have become a popular swimming and therapeutic spot for residents and visitors.

It doesn't appear to have changed since the post office was opened although it does have a cafe. It is one creepy place especially at night with hardly any street lights. I can imagine it's had many Yowie visits over the decades. (woot)

Finding out how massive Australian forested areas actually are just makes the existence of the Yowie that much more possible.
