Mt. Kembla, New South Wales 1983
Location: Mt Kembla, New South Wales
Event: Yowie Sighting
Date: November 1983/84
Terrain: Bush clearing. I was 19 or 20, and in the mountains with my wife to be.
It was about 10 to 12 at night. We were parked in the bush, in a clearing off a dirt track about 7/8ths of the way up Mount Kembla road, and had been there about 40 minutes, in the back of the car. I got this strange feeling, like a sudden dread, like the blood draining out of you.
I looked over my shoulder, and these big red eyes about 6 inches apart were staring at me. It was a rounded head like a human, but with flat sides and the eyes just stood out, it was crouched in the scrub. As it was, it was 5-6 foot off the ground. The head would have been about 4 times the size of a human's.
There was no light in the area, but the eyes just glowed by themselves. I had this immediate reaction that I was being hunted, I had to flee, I was in danger. I quickly closed the window, jumped into the front seat, started the car, and revved it really hard, and gunned it out of there. I kept looking in the rear view mirror, to see if anything was coming. We would have been 4 or 5 kilometres down the road, before I stopped the car, and we got dressed.
Later when we were living in Coffs Harbour, we met another couple who had also seen one in that area. The glowing red eyes, confirmed it for me that they had seen what I had.
