The Story of the Kilcoy Yowie

The Yowie is a mysterious creature believed by many to dwell in the shires rugged northern terrain. It has been legendary throughout the shire for many years with longtime residents, farmers and wood-cutters claiming to have seen it on several occasions. In 1979 after one such sighting, footprints were found and plaster casts taken. It was after the sighting at Sandy Creek 4km from Kilcoy, the Council commissioned a statue made of birch wood. Vandals attacked the statue several times removing his male appendage. The statue has been replaced recently with a more modest version. It can be seen in Yowie Park in Kilcoy.
