  • Bunyips

    Here's a neat kids site for information on the Bunyip. It includes a few aboriginal myths, evidence for and against it pictures and games and the history of how it integrated itself into modern stories and tv shows.

        dot and the kangaroo i just got done intro'ing my girl to that movie, it scared the crappola outta me as a kid too. not something i'd want to run into in the dark. moral of the story, we don't go skinny dipping in austrailia at night. jason vorhees can eat his heart out and bunyips are kinda cool.

          I've heard that the Bunyip and Yowie are related in some ways (via stories that say they are one in the same or Yowies are derived from Bunyips ect)

          Does anyone remember this book? Seriously the scariest book ever lol.

          When I was little my dad used to tell me stories of Bunyips and Yowies while we were traveling in the bush in his truck (semi truck driver) then we'd have to stop in the middle of nowhere in the middle of the night to get some sleep, yeah right, thanks dad!!!! LOL

            One account from the the mid 1800's said it was about the size of a small and dark brown. But really if you don't bother it, you should be fairly safe. Just be picky about what water way you choose to swim in.

              Mass hysteria and mass complacency are flip sides of the same coin. Never panic, always think for yourself. Question all information, even from those individuals and sources you hold most cherished, for in those instances, complacency and hysteria alike become all too easy. All information either comes from humans or is filtered through the human mind (our own or another's) and thus subject to human faults no matter if it comes from a scientist or a messiah. Question it. And constantly question yourself.
