Yowie hunter claims thermal images he snapped in a national park PROVE the mythical creatures exist
- Yowie researcher claimed he has proof of their existence in thermal images
- The footage was taken at Springbrook National Park in the Gold Coast, QLD
- Despite reported sightings, Yowies have not been formally discovered
A Yowie hunter who snapped a series of thermal images in bushland claims the pictures ‘prove’ the mythical creature exists.
Dean Harrison from Yowie Researchers claimed the photos, taken in May at Springbrook National Park on the Gold Coast, show two ‘eight-foot tall Yowies’.
Assistant researcher Buck Buckingham said he identified two heat signatures in dense scrub area in the bushland.

‘Two large Yowies appeared from behind [a] tree,’ Mr Harrison said in a video documenting the supposed sightings.
Mr Harrison claimed the first Yowie pretended to be a tree in a bid to hide from the researchers.
‘It’s doing what Yowies do, they all hug a tree,’ he said.
‘This one here is hugging the tree so he blends in so Buck [Buckingham, who was taking the video,] can’t see him.’
He later said the Yowies identified where Mr Buckingham was standing.
‘Later, they placed four markers directly on the tracks where Buck was standing the previous night,’ Mr Harrison told the Courier Mail.
‘The markers were not there on our way in, and were not there at 2am, but they were there at 6am on our way out.’
For anyone that doesn’t believe the imagery could be real, Mr Harrison said: ‘I couldn’t care less if people refuse to acknowledge [Yowies’] existence. I’m not here to convince them, I’m here to provide the facts.’

Twenty minutes after the first alleged sighting, Mr Harrison claimed another came into sight and picked something up while the first Yowie watched behind his back.
‘They know there are humans in the area. Because we’re playing music, we’re playing classical music,’ he said.
‘Another observation that Buck made was they made no noise when they entered, they made no noise when they left.’
