April 2009 -- Two backpackers on a year long trip around Australia got the fright of their life last week while they were out trekking in bush land in the vicinity of the township of Leura, not far from the well known Katoomba landmark, ‘The Three Sisters’.
It was early evening and by the two ladies admission a bit late to be by themselves in the bush. Ingrid Schoen 23, of
Germany and Adi Hassan, 22 of France decided to head back into to town when heard the breaking of branches and loud footsteps heading towards them. Ingrid shone a torch onto the track in front of them. At this point they both claim to have seen what they now describe as Bigfoot charge away into the distance.
"Admittedly we did not get a close look but we think what we saw looked like the American Bigfoot, basically covered in hair and about two meters tall. It definitely had no clothes on and was not human."
Ingrid told All News Web reporter Jadyn Cassidy. "We were petrified and almost lost our way back in our nervous state," Ingrid commented.
The Blue Mountains is believed to be the home of a creature known as the Yowie, basically Australia’s version of Bigfoot or the Yeti. There have been many recent sightings.
Prior to the arrival of Europeans local Aboriginal
tribes were certain of its existence. Aboriginal communities still living in the Blue Mountains along with some other locals continue to believe the Yowie might be out there in the vast expanses of Australia’s Great Dividing Range.
