Location: Oxley Island, New South Wales

Event: Bones Uncovered

Date: 1967

Terrain: Farming properties.



Mr. Thomas of Oxley Island was ploughing the paddocks on his Taree property just like any other day, when he noticed he was leaving a trail of bones. On closer inspection of what he uncovered, he found six skeletons which had the largest heads he'd ever seen. The size of the bones were enormous, some were white and some brown. At first he thought they must be human, it wasn't until later when he thought more of it he realized that they were not.

He distinctly remembers the size of the "brain case", and said the skulls had a pre-human look about them.

He called the local Police who called "an unknown party" in Sydney, then quardened off the entire area for many weeks. They brought large trucks to remove the bodies and no one was allowed near the site until they were gone and all traces of the bones were removed.

That was the last he ever heard about the finds, he said "At the time I never thought about asking questions until it was too late".

Researchers notes: Oxley Island and Taree are one of the largest Yowie hot spots in the Country. We believe Yowies bury their dead and have no doubt that pre-aboriginal Neanderthals inhabited this country many years ago. For some reason, authorities don't like to admit it.
