Location: Worongary, Queensland

Event: Yowie Sighting

Date: 1985

Time: 12am

[Female witness – Occurred in the same street as the 1982 sighitng]




We were 15 years old at the time, and myself and a female friend were returning home from a night out in Surfers Paradise. When we were close to home, we realised we were short on the cab fare, so asked him to stop short on the corner of San Fernando and Hinkler Drive, which was the beginning of our estate (new estate at the time).


We parted ways at the corner and I was about a third of the way home to my house and at about 20 to 30 metres away there was a creature that was very tall, with long ears and glowing eyes [Witness later sent through a picture of an Anubis].


I can’t remember if the eyes were green or red, but they were glowing. It was slim, tall, the ears were sticking up and I did an about face and ran.


I caught up with my friend Kim and I remember shaking her and describing it. She didn’t want to know about it. I ended up going home the long way. After that night, I would never walk home that way again.


Back then, there was a lot more bush than there is now.


It was face on to me, so I couldn’t see if it had a snout. The ears were long and straight up in the same position on the head where a dogs ears would be, but about 20 to 30 centimetres long, in the shape of a Dobermans ears. I estimate it to have been 7 to 8ft tall. It was tall. The eyes stood out because they seemed to be self-illuminating.


I’ve always described it as a Yowie encounter, but after looking at pictures on the internet, no, it looked nothing like it.


There was another time in the same area and with the same friend, when we were in the bush smoking (that’s were we hid from out parents to smoke). All of the sudden there was this ‘whoosh’ sound/feeling and it was like a force. My friend Kim, started hitting the ground with a stick and we were both saying ‘What is it, what is it’. I don’t know if that has anything to do with it, but it was most confusing.
