Strange and unexplained footprints are found all over Australia. Many of them are found in locations where the Yowie has been seen. 

Below is a sample of some of the prints that have been found over recent years.


 Yowie Footprints are often hard to find due to Australian hard terrain in many areas.






This 15" (380mm) print was found on private block of land at Tara in Queensland, by Mr. Moroney. Next to this impression was a tree driven upside down into the ground. Mr. Moroney states, "there are two groups living on this property - one far more aggressive than the other." The location is just south of well known Yowie sighting areas. 





While camping in a group near Sue's Bridge, along the side of the Blackwood River in Western Australia - 2022, Mr. J. Barr discovered rain washed footprints measuring 400mm / 16-17". The prints seem to be flat footed and flare heavily at the instep as expected. The Blackwood State Forest links with Yowie sightings in other areas.





 Ongoing finds in the Nightcap National Park and Whian Conservation Area, New South Wales, lead to these footprints being discovered. Seemingly large prints being followed by the small prints, as shown. The area has all the signs associated with an active Yowie area, along with previous sightings surrounding the location.





After reading an AYR Article in 2012, J. Dunn and friend explored a remote area of Tamborine Mountain in August of that year. He reported noises etc and this lone print was discovered. No size reference was provided, however the proportions look correct.







During a spate of Yowie sightings in the Miles / Chinchilla area on Queensland, Mr Poenrose discovered a series of massive bipedal footprints with 5 toes around his dam in Novemeber of 2019. 







After several years of activity in the Marysville area of Victoria, of which he has Documented, Mr. Higgins sent the AYR various pictures of prints he cast in 2021. Marysville is on the cusp of past Yowie sightings.




 Found on a sandbar in the middle of the Abercrombie River in 1988-9 by a couple looking for old Gold mining shafts. There were several prints at the location that were destroyed by another native animal prints over the top them. When camping that night, sounds of roaring and crashing through the bush were heard.
