Location: Gunnedah, New South Wales

Event: Yowie Sighting

Date of Sighting: 2003

Time: 10-11pm




Myself and 3 mates had been fishing at a river between Tamworth and Gunnedah. We were driving back to Gunnedah at around 10 – 11pm and were only about 2kms out of town when this thing ran across the road about 10 – 15m ahead of us.


It was hunched right over with its hands almost touching the ground and running in an awkward manner like it was a bit uncoordinated.


And as its running, it had its head tilted to the side looking right at us.


We were like what the hell is that? And Mark, one of the other guys in the car said “That must have been a Yowie”. We all grew up out in the bush and we’ve never seen anything like that before.


It ran from the right from where the river is, across the road and to the left side, which is more of a hilly type area.


It was covered in a shaggy grey’ish hair about 3 or 4” long.
