A Conversation for The Bunyip
another side to the bunyip
bjoose Started conversation Feb 25, 2004
While it is true that many a bunyip legend consists of tales of vengence, usually toward someone who ignored local warnings, there is another side of the bunyip stories that not many people seem to pay attention to. Some people who have been lost in the outback have told stories about being saved by the work of a bunyip. Most of these stories involve the people being led to water following strange sounds, and some of them see strange things. I can not remember where I read these stories, otherwise I would mention it here, but I thought you might like to know, that it is considered to be both a kind and a vengeful creature.
