From the Dreamtime the Yowie In Myth And Reality
Twenty one kilometres
north of Wandandian lies Nowra and the Shoalhaven River.
Here in the
Sassafras district of the Shoalhaven in 1956, Mr Max Anderson was spotlight
shooting one night when he observed a strange hairy animal moving through
bushes. As first he thought it to be a kangaroo moving about.
he watched it he realised it was moving upright upon two legs and was
a good 2.3 m in height.
Dumbfounded, Max watched as the creature moved
off into thick bush to disappear from view.
Claims of sightings of Yowies by property owners and others have persisted
for the past 70 years in the Bundanoon/Kangaroo Valley area, and around
1900 the district was alive with reports of a "hairy boy"
roaming the bushland.
these areas are still the scene of Yowie sightings.
