"In Australia alone is to be found the Grotesque,
the Weird, the strange scribblings of Nature learning how to write.
Some see no beauty in our trees without shade, our flowers without perfume, our birds who cannot fly,
and our beasts who have not yet learned to walk on all fours.
But the dweller in the wilderness acknowledges the subtle charm of this fantastic land of monstrosities...
The phantasmagoria of that wild dreamland termed the Bush interprets itself..." - Marcus Clarke

Gayndah Circus Crash 1959
Local folklore tells of a circus crash near Gayndah in 1959 which is often cited as the cause for modern
day sightings of big cats, bears, and orangutans in the area.
Did it really happen?
in the Blue Mountains! Find out why people chose to research the Australian Yowie.
“If you add it all up, you have an 8-foot, 8-inch tall creature that is killing
animals at different areas of Mount St. Helens with its bare hands, chewing them up, literally skin and bones and all, and spitting
them out between its legs,” Townsend said.
The teeth marks in the bone show what Townsend said were impressions of incisors and
canines, but 90 percent of the teeth were beyond “the range of human possibility.”
[A] drama series following two Indigenous Y-geners, Alice and Lucas, who find themselves
exploring, unravelling and combating the supernatural, unearthly creatures and ghostly mysteries. Together they battle the spirits
and demons that seep through ancient cracks in the modern world. The series explores the supernatural and celebrates the richness
and depth of Aboriginal Australia’s latent spiritual legacy.
I have made many important discoveries. Being an amateur, it is only natural that the conservative
university-based scientific fraternity of ‘desk-professors’ criticise my ‘methodology’ and theories and my many jealous rivals frequently
attempt to discredit me with many untrue statements and attacks which have become quite slanderous at times. The trouble with these
people is that, unlike them, I steer clear of sensationalism – ie organising well-publicised media-backed ‘Yowie hunts’.
The QT launched a new investigation in 2013 but failed to locate the elusive, hairy phenomena.
after numerous requests, we have decided to leave no stone unturned in our quest to locate the amazing ape-like creature and deliver
it to leading cryptozoologists for further study.
"Once we started researching and more people started contacting us, we realised there was a lot that went
on in the bush that couldn't be explained."
Nigel said you could have suburbia on one side of the highway and forest on the other and
you can spend "a scary night on the forested side of the road".
Photos of a monstrosities like a 'dinosaur fish' become theme of discussion of netizens in
Nam Dinh province, north of Vietnam.
Pictures of the monstrous fish buzz for many people, because of the similarity of dinosaurs
so people call it 'dinosaur fish'. Eye of this fish lies near the mouth, but sunspots located at the head as many people to believe
that it is his eye and think of the dinosaurs.
The yowie, as far as I'm concerned, based on Aboriginal folklore, is a Homo
erectus - a tool making, fire making hominid. And this is where certain plagiarists have gone wrong. They think they're looking for
a big gorilla or a monkey-type animal, and it's not - he's very much like you and I. And I realise that apart from the average 5ft
to 6ft tall traditional yowie, as it were, it was a larger creature that was leaving footprints. And so I decided to do what any other
scientist does when he discovers a new race or a new species. He names it. So I've just called them 'Rex Beast'.
“The vastly virgin forest and valleys along which the cable
car route is proposed is a prime location for the relic hominid.”
Mr Harrison said while the secret to Yowies’ surprising survival
into the 21st century was their ability to remain hidden from humans, they may eventually be lured to a false level of confidence
by the cable car.
Now we know there is nothing to be afraid of, can the Kraken finally be laid
to rest? Probably not says Classen. "We humans are afraid of the strangest things. They don't need to be realistic. There's no indication
that enlightenment and scientific progress has banished the monsters from the shadows of our imaginations. We will continue to be
afraid of very strange things, including probably sea monsters."
Judging from the remains the creature was giant and about twice the length of a
human, and it had a huge nose like a bird’s beak.
Nikolay Kim, Deputy Head of the Forecasting department of the Sakhalin Research
Institute of Fisheries and Oceanography, said: 'I can confidently say that this is some kind of a dolphin. However, it has fur. It's
unusual. Dolphins do not have any fur.'
This has also not addressed the presence
of figures identified as the Hairy Woman and the Hairy Child, other than the assumption that they, along with Hairy Man, constitute
a Hairy Family (which, of course, could be the case). Let us hope that some researcher will revisit the question and try to record
stories explaining the Hairy Woman and Child.
Innocent mistakes can tell us a great deal – about perception, about belief-systems, and about much

of Nessie - losing his girlfriend and home in the process...
But now Mr Feltham says he has come to the conclusion Nessie does not

as long as 13ft and up to 62 stone.
