From the Dreamtime the Yowie In Myth And Reality
One day in 1985 a cattleman,
rounding up a mob of cattle on the Gilbert River, near Strathmore inland
from the Gulf of Carpenteria disturbed a 2m tall, hairy ape-like female
creature with nubile breasts as she hid behind bushes.
After that, he had trouble
getting his Aboriginal workmen to enter the area.
Hereabouts traditions of
the Turramulli giants of Queensland's far north merge with stories of
the dreaded Pankalanka creatures from across the border in the Northern
Territory, of which more will be said anon.
