Strange things happen along the Putty Road at night. For many years now people
driving between Windsor and Singleton at the southern and northern ends of this
road respectively, have seen mysterious glowing objects passing over the road coming
from the east and descending into the Wollemi wilderness directly to the west.
Other people have been followed by glowing objects that descended from
above to keep pace with their vehicle; while others have experienced the sensation of
their cars being followed by a glowing ‘force’ that appeared overhead to keep pace
with them before drawing their vehicle up off the road like a magnet for up to a metre
then dropping them.
It is not the place to stop for any length of time at night and many people
prefer to get through it as soon as they are able. These weird experiences convince
locals that UFOs are a reality.As I stated in Chapter Ten, over the years campers and others who have
penetrated remote locations of the Wollemi wilds have afterwards reported having stumbled upon large, circular depressions in open areas and swampland locations.
from these areas that distant sightings have often been made by people, day and night,
of ‘saucer-type’ craft either descending into or emerging from the bushland.
Even the author had found circular depressions on two previous Wollemi
visits, in 2002 and 2005 but their condition made them look more like dried circular
Finally during the winter of 2006, Heather and I drove up the Putty Road
from Windsor one day to enable me to investigate a region deep inland from the road.
On this occasion I had Heather remain with our car as the area I was going to look at
was particularly rough and overgrown.
However, because of the drought weather I soon discovered the swamplands
to have completely dried up and a lot of foliage died away.
The swampgrass, over a metre tall, was all dried, and in one dried-up swamp
near the edge of dense scrub, I found a circular depression of crushed reeds which I
soon measured as being 25ft [7.62m] in diameter.
The depression in the ground was
up to 40cm at its centre. It was obvious to me that a heavy object had rested there.
The depression was at least a couple of weeks old. I realised that I had found a ‘saucer
About 300 metres west of the ‘nest’ I soon came upon another of the same
measurements, in an open and extensive tract of dried swamp. As I scanned the
surrounding swampland with my binoculars, a couple of hundred metres to the north
I spotted another, larger circular depression.
This ‘nest’ proved to be 100ft [30m] in
diameter, lying in a section of swampland containing a mixture of reeds and dense
leptospermum bushes. Fighting my way through this obstacle was no easier than it
was getting out of it afterwards, but from the mass of crushed, flattened foliage and 1
metre deep depression, I could see that a much larger craft than those responsible for
the other two ‘nests’ had landed here about the same time as the other two craft.
The time was getting on so I began making my way back through acres of
dried, dead swampgrass, and dense bushland to Heather. This region is ‘alive’ with
deadly tiger snakes in the summer months, so winter is the preferred time to
investigate this wilderness.
s we had other investigations to attend to the remainder
of the 2006 winter was spent elsewhere, but 2007 will see us back there, in search of
further clues of UFO landings in the Wollemi depths.
Large spacecraft of saucer, ‘egg’, hexagonal and other shapes are frequently
sighted by people over the Wollemi-Newnes region day and night, and a few
eyewitnesses have seen mystery craft either descend into the forest depths or rise from
Obviously there are spaceport openings lying under cover in this wilderness.
