PP Anna has vouched for John.  This will be a very different talk.  What do you currently know about the Yowie?  Nothing I reply.  Well come along and get informed.

The yowie is Australia’s very own Bigfoot. They are reputed to live in the wilderness and witnesses claim to have seen them in all states and territories on the Australian mainland.

Ipswich, west of Brisbane, is right now considered a yowie hotspot among researchers.

Yowies go by a few names in various regions — puttikan, yahoo and tjangara among them — and tales of their existence have long featured in Aboriginal stories and oral histories.

The first so-called interaction between a yowie and a white man was thought to be in 1882, involving amateur naturalist Henry James McCooey somewhere between Ulladulla and Bateman’s Bay on the NSW coast.

But you’re more likely to encounter a yowie in the form of the chocolate bar that shares its name.

Yowies, like the Abominable Snowman, are overwhelmingly considered the stuff of legend, perhaps even an endearing part of Australian folklore. Alleged sightings have been deemed misidentification or pure hoax.
