For the stuff that's NOT 4WD related, here's where you can come on in and discuss it, but do play nice!

To catch one you need to for a three day bender and then pick up while still on it hard.
When you wake up in the morning next to it....you'll be a believer too.

Mate, since the invasion of white people and the brazen annihilation of their natural habitat, Yowies have adapted to become like the possums in the big cities. They go through your garbage bins and eat your pets leftover food in the early hours of the morning while you are blissfully dreaming of Mary-Jane Rottencrotch.

They have also been known to tar and feather themselves and disguise themselves as seagulls and bludge for chips around picnic tables and parks. If you don't believe me then how else would you explain the presence of seagulls in parts of inland Australia, like broken hill and Mt isa?

Hah yowies! I'd forgotten all about them!

I knew a bloke many years ago that was fully convinced yowies existed. He'd gotten involved in some sort of yowie hunters club and they used to go out looking for them all the time. I used to give him so much ***** about it, was endlessly amusing. I had nothing to do one night and finally gave in and went out for a look with him.

Had to laugh, he had night vision goggle, night vision binoculars, all the kit, was awesome! Can't remember exactly where he took me, wasnt far from a new estate though. I remember he reckoned he saw something in the bushes so me and another mate were gawking out with the nightvision, thought we saw something too, were getting all trembling and excited. Then the bastard chucked a big branch in the bush behind where we were standing. We seriously nearly had kittens and ran for our lives. That was enough yowie hunting for one night!

Found there website, look at all the sightings in QLD! Fruitcakes galore!

I don't know what it is about drivers of 4x4's that makes them so humorous , it could be all that bouncing up and down on rough bush tracks that does it ?

Those replies are priceless , and thanks for those excellent links , a lot of good stuff in there.

Years ago on our first drive around Aus we met an interesting gentleman in the top end of WA who showed us a small fossilized hoof .... I don't know how long it takes organic matter to become fossilized but I'm guessing it would be many many years , so what ever animal had hooves did exist in this country once upon a time .

And trojan and eraser are so right about so much of this country that is yet to be explored .

I think it would be absolutely amazing if the Yowie did exist and turned out to be Darwin's missing link , which would have the effect of turning one of societies mainstay belief systems up side down .... That could be a real catastrophe ?

Happy trails to every one and always keep film in your camera .... Thanks .

There is a place at the back of the hinterland in qld, that has a resturant dedicated to the yowi.
Yowi placemats
yowi size meals
can't remember the name of the place, our qld folk may be able to shed some light? They were very convinced yowi's were around that area.

Yowies, panthers and rock-dogs

Had any unsettling sightings/encounters with furry fanged creatures? Or Roothies? Here's the place to tell us all about it. I know there are a lot of people on here who would have just such a tale. This stuff genuinely interests me, so I'd love to hear about anything that you've seen/heard about.

If you haven't already seen them here XJ, there are quite a few earlier mentions on the Forum about Yowies, Panthers, Polar Bears, Big Dogs, Rock Dogs, & all sorts of other weird & wonderful sightings - well worth a read! Makes you think, doesn't it! ;)
