Location: Bongil Bongil National Park, New South Wales

Event: Yowie Sighting (?) **** Paranormal ****

Date: Jan 1st, 2008

Time: 2.30am




I was travelling home from Nambucca Heads along the Pacific Highway at 2.30am, and I was really running the gauntlet in terms of fuel. I took a risk and shouldn’t have left at the time that I did. It was undue duress circumstances that I left.


It was in the forestry area between Nambucca Heads and Coffs Harbour. The area was densely forested and they had been changing the Highway there so the road was split north and south, and it re-joined into single lanes both ways at stages. There had been quite a bit of clearing being done along there for the new Highway so it gave me quite good vision at that point, although I still had heavy foliage on the left hand side.


I noticed something dark beside me in the trees, and I thought it was just the shadow of the vehicle reflecting through the forestry as I travelled down the road. My dog was whimpering. I had her in the back seat and she was whimpering and whimpering…. I thought ‘What’s going on’, she never whimpers, she enjoys travelling in the car. That gave me a concern straight away. She jumped in the front seat under the passenger side dashboard. It was bizarre how the dog was behaving.


I noticed in my periphery that whatever this was in the forestry seemed to be cutting through the bush towards me. I took note of my speed and at that stage I was doing 95kmph, and this thing was coming closer and the open forest line was coming to an end (meaning it was encroaching back closer to the road), so it would have no choice but be close to the road and I could see what this thing is.


Even though this happened many years ago, it still give me goose bumps telling the story and I rarely tell it to anyone. My daughter threatens to have me locked up if I tell it again!


So the creature it coming closer and all of a sudden I could see orange. All this orange…. It had orange flowing hair. This is not hair like a Yowie, I’m talking 2.5m long and the hair just flowed off him. The hair looked like a Red Setter. It was lean, skinny, very long arms, extended long arms, very long legged, and it was on 4 legs coming in fast. It was massive. It had its head down at first and I couldn’t see any face at all, just hair and legs. It was absolutely keeping pace with me. It was almost like it was playing with me.


I had the feeling this thing was going to come in front of me. I said to myself, this thing it going to come in front of me. And it was getting closer, closer, closer, closer and I thought ‘here we go’, and it was within about 2 or 3 metres, and this thing – stood up on two legs – and ran in front of me. It would have been 8.5ft tall.


I had sped up to 120kmph to try and get away from it, and this thing still managed to get up onto two legs and get in front of me.


It was the most incredible thing I have ever seen. The dog was just screaming. It was incredible.


I was thinking ‘what the hell, what is it doing’. It was showing itself in front of me. It was so powerful. It was like a game. It just stood up and powered. We are talking about speeds of up to 160 through the bush out onto the lanes and back into the bush and gone.


When it was in front of my car, it was just on front of my headlights, less than 1 metre. It came from left hand side of the bush, out in front of the car, then across the south bound lane and back into the bush on the other side.


The hair was extreme. It would have been from the top of my head to the ground. The hair was all over it. It basically showed me its power and how it had so much more power than me. It was so tall that I had to lean forward over my steering wheel to look at it when it stood up. I was like, ‘what the…..’


It didn’t want to harm me. It was playing with me. It was like a sport to it.


I think it may have been something alien because of the burst and influx of power. It couldn’t have been a Yowie to have that type of strength and power to get in front of me at the speed I was travelling, while it was still running on its hands and jump in front of my vehicle at nearly 110kmph. A Yowie couldn’t do that? I know Yowies have speed and agility, but not like that.


This all has to be mentioned. I’ve carried it a long time with me. It’s the type of experience that people would have and never talk about again.


This creature was young – and if this creature was young, imagine what we would be up against if we had a family of big ones.


It had Human characteristics. Human hands, Human feet, face was like an ape or basically what we see in a Yowie. The face was very dark brown, like dark brown chocolate skin. He turned his face almost to smile at me while it was right in front of me. That’s when I saw his face. I had been watching every single second to try and see his face. It was very Human like, but very ape material. He only turned his head for a second.


I had him right under my headlights at one stage. I had watched him from a shadow, which I thought was a travelling shadow of the car, to something that was suddenly coming through the bush. He was knocking over pine trees the size of 4 of our legs together with one arm as he was coming through the bush. I could hear the cracking and crashing of him coming through it. It was like it was a gymnasium to him.


I didn’t look back.
