Dean Harrison http://www.yowiehunters.com.au/ and Gary Opit http://garyopit.com/ deserve full credit for discovering How Brett Green Hoaxed his photos for his booklet "Yowie Tales".

The following time codes from the BBC episode show which frames Green stole and what he did with the frames.

8.17 Family On Rock. Green photo given to one of us before the book launch. Green was going to use this in the second book.
 
9.26 Two Yowies Facing away on Rock-Green photo given to one of us before the book launch. Green was going to use this in the second book.
 
10.51 Walking Slim Male On Right-Page 113 in Yowie Tales.
 
11.42 Face-The Face was on the cover of "Yowie tales Book 1"+page 113.
 
Face photo was used on page 2 and under the photo was the text.'Cover Image Illustration © B J Green.'
Pages 51/52/53 "Yowie Tales" Green describes taking the photos used in "Yowie Tales".
 
For years he told his friends he took these photos of the yowies.
He lied to some of his closest friends.
Seriously, the guy has no shame.
It was all about ego and money..nothing more..
In terms of "Yowie Research" this is significant news.
 
Yowieocalypse is very critical of Harrison's role in Yowie shenanigans but in this instance deserves kudos for actually following through and solving a case. Well done, Mr. Harrison.
 
Further information and a comprehensive review will be available soon but something tells me this drama is far from over...

Ok - let's review the hoax claims:

11.42 Face-The Face was on the cover of "Yowie tales Book 1"+ page 113.
Note that the first two pictures listed at 8.17 and 9.26 are not in "Yowie Tales" so it is speculation as to whether Green was going to use it in its subsequent books. However, there is no doubt that the images at 10.51 and 11.42 were copied in Green's book - the latter featuring on the cover:

Which turned out to be an old series of trellised gardens and nothing more.

"Trellised gardens"?

Where is the supporting evidence?

Historian Dr. Elaine Brown addressed images 1a, 1b, and 2:
1a.
1b.
2.
3.
4.
The three images above were supplied to me by Brett Green. He told me that they were given to him and that he had been told that they were taken from glass plate photographs reputed to have been taken in the 19th Century on or near the Gympie Pyramid.


To me there appear to be several problems with these statues and the images of them. Firstly I should state that, amongst other things, I have been a professional sculptor, carving stone, for over 15 years.

Firstly all three statues appear to be made of clay or some other soft moldable material. The head of (1) appears to be hollow and "glued" to a stack of three or more stone slabs around which grass has been arranged to hide the joint. Note that the grass at base has been moved to a different position for each photo. If the head had been solid stone it would have been unbalanced and toppled over long ago. The shadow in the eye socket from both angles also supports the head being hollow. Such a form could not be carved from stone. Likewise the construction of the lower jaw on both heads would have been extremely difficult and unlikely given the otherwise "primitive" nature of the "carvings". To carve the teeth and lower jaw out of stone without snapping would be difficult even with modern power tools. Only wood could be carved like this (though not hollow headed).

The image (2) is clearly modern as it had been taken at very close range with a camera that was using a flash. The camera being close to ground level pointing upwards. This is all obvious because of the relationship of the grass shadows and light.

The other images (1a) and (1b) are different angles of the same object. These have also been photographed using a flash but because the camera is elevated the use of an old fashioned flash or flash powder can not be eliminated. However the fact that both images were from the same source as (2) must cast some doubt on their integrity.

I could go on pointing out problems with these things as images or as statues but the point I want to make here is that when I pointed these things out Brett immediately acknowledged the images as fake and withdrew them.

Although "Brett immediately acknowledged the images as fake and withdrew them" Green continued to display the images and their bogus back-story as genuine on his website:
gympie_pyramid_story6.jpg
"The ‘Gympie Ape’ - an examination by the Queensland Museum had shown was of no great age and had been carved with metal tools. Nor was it found at the site of the 'Gympie Pyramid'. Current online speculation dates the statue as being 3000 years old."

Brown's assessment was posted online on September 26, 2006. I became aware of it whilst looking into the back-story of Dean Harrison's claim of being attacked by a Yowie (in an area shown to him by Brett Green) and began posting the reference:

However, this is old news.
The "trellised gardens" part suggested lacks supporting documentation. Just because someone says "It is so" doesn't mean that it is...

HOAX 2

The Gympie Pyramid Mysteries."investigated" by Green..
Fake rock "carvings" from this scam are here

Which turned out to be an old series of trellised gardens and nothing more.

HOAX 3

Then two of his close friends told me that Green claimed to have been knighted by the queen.
The John Green genealogy web site were also told this by Brett himself.
Then I found out he had obtained the "knighthood" from he principality of Hutt River.

HOAX 4

Then there was the saga of the "Tales of a Warrior" which purported to show Brett`s uncle John Green living with aboriginals in QLD and finding evidence of pyramids and yowies.

 This faked diary was supplied to universities in QLD by Brett Green after a mystery fire destroyed the original.So no one could check..

 The Green family historian`s told me the following re Sir Brett`s claims.

 "John Green lived at Tongarra until his death in 1889 and is buried in the cemetery of All Saints Church of England, Albion Park. The family man and Aussie battler revealed in The Green Book is a very different person from the emotional, opinionated writer of the Green 'diaries'."

 And thats the last we will ever hear from Brett Green Serial Hoaxer.

Mike Williams credits Dean Harrison and Gary Opit for uncovering the real source of Green's "Yowie photographs" but who is responsible for uncovering hoaxes 2, 3, and 4?
