Beauty and the Beast
According to Wikipedia a bunyip is “a large mythical creature from Aboriginal dreaming stories, said to lurk in swamps, billabongs, creeks, riverbeds, and waterholes.”
The fiercesome reputation of the bunyip is legendary so I was wary when I found out there was one at Mulgildie. I needn’t have worried though.
This scaly creature was gentle and friendly, and we spent a wonderful afternoon together. (I gave him some timely advice about dental care.)
Now, every time I come to a waterhole I look to see if there’s a bunyip in residence, but so far I haven’t met another one. I hope if I do he’s as approachable as my Mulgildie mate!
From one legend to another!
