N.S.W: An expedition will search Barrington Tops for mysterious Australian Yowie.

The director of the Mount York Natural History Museum at Mount Victoria, NSW, Mr Rex Gilroy, who first brought the Yowie to public attention throughout Australia will lead the search.

He will be in the Gloucester area in about March or April, then move on to Grafton and later carry out a search in the Lamington district of Soulhern Queensland.

Mr Gilroy believes the Yowie to be related to the Himalayan Abominable Snowman and North American Bigfoot, and that the ancesotrs of the Yowie entered Ausralia before the close of the last ice-age over the land-bridge that once linked Australia to mainland Asia.

Eye witnesses have described it as being about 2.5 metres (approximately eight feet) tall, weighing up to 270 kilograms (about 600 lbs). It is covered from head to foot in long hair and walks erect on two legs.
