Bunyips. [Shirley-Raye Redmond] -- Describes the characteristics and origin of the bunyip, a mythical creature said to live in swamps, billabongs, creeks, riverbeds, and waterholes; and examines its appearance in popular culture.

    According to Aboriginal legend, Bunyips are creatures that lurk in swamps, billabongs, creeks, riverbeds, and waterholes. They emerge at night, making terrifying, blood-curdling cries, and devour any animal or human that dare venture near its abode. In Dreamtime the Bunyip was a spirit, which inhabited river, lakes, swamps, and billabongs (former parts of rivers that were left behind when the course of the river was altered). Like other beasts in Dreamtime, the Bunyip was malevolent towards human beings.

    Killer Bunyips inhabit billabongs and lagoons. Bunyips are creatures deeply rooted in Australian folklore, based in Aboriginal mythology. They’re mostly described as nocturnal lake monsters, lurking in billabongs or swamps. What do they look like? Accounts vary, from beasts with tusks or horns, to bird-like creatures covered in scales. In the Bunyip Tree books, bunyips maintain an air of mystery while also being kind, wise and always there to help out any animal in need. They come in many shapes and sizes and are responsible for different parts of the land. The Water Bunyip, who appears in the book Special Delivery lives underwater and takes care of the billabongs and rivers.
