    WOW! Great info, good article! It seems the men who first thought up the mythical creatures were the first writers so to speak? Any writer could learn a lot from articles like yours I guess, the old creatures like vampires, wizards, dragons are too ordinary already, so I guess any author should create new? I strive for that in my books: weightless korks, fish-keepers, rock pieces, glowing, living balls, Brown faces, etc.
    Thanks for sharing this info! It could be very useful for any author! Best wishes!

    ahaha drop bears! so epic,
    im sure it’s just a myth told to tourists to scare them, the version i was told said it was just koalas but they drop on ya and claw your face etc to protect their tree and their young.

    Does your website have a contact page? I’m having trouble locating it but, I’d like to shoot you an e-mail. I’ve got some creative ideas for your blog you might be interested in hearing. Either way, great site and I look forward to seeing it grow over time.

    Iâ??m of the opinion that the Australian Yowie is one of the most problematic of mystery beasts. It is, in fact, so ridiculous and inconvenient that itâ??s difficult to take seriously.

      No the yowie is the only one that has any credibility. He’s very frequently spotted. I myself saw one in 2006 and I have been obsessed ever since. There is most defiantly a large hairy creature that lives in the hinterland of south east Queensland

      the tassie tiger was actually a real animal not a mythical creature the only myth about it is people reporting seeing them after they were reported to be extinct

    This is really interesting. I already knew most of these because we learn about a lot of aboriginal folklore and mythology in primary school. But the yara-ma-yha-who I’d never heard of. It actually sounds like a prehistoric kind of vampire.

    Yowie is very much real. It’s very large, hairy, and has a very animal/human appearance and warrents further investogation. I’ve seen it and so have many others.
