Story reads:

A well-known former resident of Wallawarrin Mr. Sam Chapman, now of Clifton Rest home, Port Macquarie, tells his short Yowie story.

“About 1923 Jack Brewer asked me if I would go halves with him in felling scrub up at Charltons, near the Nulla. We went up into the scrub, rigged up a camp and settled in.

One day Brewer walked out of the scrub, kicked the fire and said he would never go back in there again.

He said he’d seen a Hairy Man walking on a log. He never did go back, and I had to get some contractors to come in and finish the Job.
