Shanahan's Mountain Camp


Years ago I was told the story of a young man who claimed to have an encounter with yowies at Shanahan's Mountain in 2009.

As the tale went this fellow, who had argued with his parents, decided to drive out on Bobeyon Road to the southern most reach of the Territory to camp in the Shanahan's Mountain walking trail carpark. (why there I couldn't imagine).

On the second night of his stay there he says he was confronted by the sounds of branches breaking and bipedal movements around the carpark culminating in an attack of rocks being hurled into the carpark. In terror he fled in his car at this juncture. And so ends the story.

On Saturday a couple of friends and myself enjoyed the views atop Shanahan's Mountain and spent the evening camped down in the carpark. The night was quite cool and deathly still. Many a good conversation was had while we waited for our yowies. I took some video..
