Toowoomba, Queensland 1997
Location: Picnic Point, Toowoomba
Event: Yowie Sighting
While walking on a track at Picnic Point, I glanced at a tall hairy biped walking 15’ below me, through the grass. It would have been 15 to 20’ away at the most.
I walked a few more paces, stopped and looked again. It was sitting in grass under tree, back to me, looking over the valley area. I was looking at it from the back and side on.
It had black fur as on a gorilla. Very broad muscular shoulders. It probably would have weighed about the same as a Gorilla, but it was taller.
I tried to encourage it to turn its face towards me by making noises. No response.
I started to feel nervous and walked up to the lookout atop Picnic Pt. Once there, I found I could not see its location from above.
Many people were also looking across the valley, at hang-gliders over Tabletop Mt. I think Yowie was also watching them.
The Yowie was about 8-9' tall, arms to mid-thigh, and made no sound as it walked through the grass. It had long arms that were swinging by its side as it was walking. I couldn’t see it from the knees down because of the grass.
It was definitely not Human.
