Yowie is the term for an unidentified hominid reputed to lurk in the Australian wilderness. It is an Australian cryptid similar to the Himalayan Yeti and the North American Bigfoot and it's supposedly found in the Pilliga Forest.
Deep in the heart of the Pilliga Forrest there is a former village of national significance that many people wouldn’t know about, Wooleybah. The Wooleybah Sawmill and Settlement is one of the last remaining intact examples of a bush sawmill in the Pilliga scrub. The sawmill was established in the 1930s by the Underwood family and is a demonstration of the history of forestry operations in the Pilliga and regeneration management practices of the early years.
