We have one of the greatest mimics in nature in Australia ......the Lyre Bird, and believe me they are incredible. I went walking deep into Jamison Valley in the Blue Mountains near Sydney a few years ago and heard someone coughing near by..... now we were the only people around for miles and miles........it was a load deep cough......repeated over and over....scared two shades of ****e out of me...............low and behold it was a Lyre Bird.

Yes, they are incredibly good at it, saw one recently on TV that sounded more like a chainsaw than the real thing !

Yeah the lyre birds are wicked. I can picture them hearing a 'yowie' then turning around to see a bird.

There are plenty of things is could be yet if you are of the belief that Yowies are real and are immersed in the folklore then everything that goes bump in the night could also be a Yowie.

Make no mistake about it – the Australian bush can be an intimidating place at the best of times. Come the inky darkness of night and it can be downright sinister and it is simply human nature to fill in the blanks:

“We could be being watched right this very moment…”
“Did you hear that?”
“I thought I saw something moving…”
< cue adrenaline >

I put forward the hypothesis that the Yowie is an experience not an actual undocumented species, ghost, alien, or inter-dimensional being. This hypothesis stresses that there is not any evidence for the Yowie that is not misidentified or faked, nor will there ever be. While the subjective experience of the Yowie may be real to the group or individual, the objective reality is quite mundane and distinctly at odds with the alleged experience. Essentially, the Yowie experience is completely imaginary.

Yet in spite of its fictionality, the Yowie will live on because the story is important – it bonds people to one another as it bonds their communities to the land. Imagination plays a significant, but largely unrecognised, role in both our human and cultural experiences.


Thoughts? Criticisms? Ideas for future research?

I agree.  The experience is called "shi****' yourself".

The best of times are to be had when you're "shi****' yourself".  Doesn't matter if it's aliens, cryptids or ghosts, there's nothing quite like "shi**** yourself" along with your buddies.  And the "true stories" of these events are added to in the telling... forever more.

In my experience.

I live in the Blue Moutains near Sydney but I also have a 600 acre farm 2.5 hours west of my home near a township called Koorawatha. I have had the farm for well over 10 years niow and it sits empty most of the time except when i look after cattle from the neighbours to help pay rates etc. The farm is 300 acres prime farmland and the other 300 acres goes up into the Allunie Ranges where there are waterfalls (when it rains) caves etc etc.
Now people from the township have told me of tales of the "Koorawatha Hairy Man" that has been know since aboriginal times. It is supposed to roam the Allunie Ranges...........................Well I tell you my kids (who are all in their 20's now) ****e themselves when they heard that and would not go into the mountains alone or at night even if i went with them. So even though we have not seen anything the myth created fear that made everyone hear things etc etc.
Also the neighbours have told me if you are doing any work in the mountains and you uncover any bones (human) cover them back up and move on. They say the local Aboriginals used to bury their dead along the ranges and if you uncovered any and reported it to the authorites they would claim the mountains as sacred ground and not let any one near. It happened two or three farms down from me....................interesting.

Did no one see that yowie at the start of the video, on its way to hide behind the tree?? It looks greyish to me.
