  1. I created a show a few years ago called I bunyip which explored the bunyip folklore around australia from the blue mountains, to arnhem land, to east Gippsland, to the Coorong, . thanks for your pod cast , it’s great to hear others making investigations into culture that has suffered greatly from white occupation.
