Rex and Heather Gilroy are recognised internationally, as one of the world’s foremost husband and wife research teams. In the field of Australasian Unexplained Mysteries research they have no equal. They are at the very “cutting edge” of not only Australian Cryptozoology and Yowie [Relict Hominology] research but are also the foremost authorities on the ‘unwritten’ history of Australian discovery and exploration, as well as pre-Aboriginal Stone-Age Australian occupation research.
These daring and outspoken researchers are no friends of the Australian hard-core, narrow-minded scientific establishment, who would prefer that books of the kind produced by the Gilroys were prevented from publication. Rex and Heather are determined to place their evidence on whatever subject before their readers so that they can judge for themselves with an open mind, rather than be told what to think by the ‘establishment’ academics.
Rex, a self-taught historical researcher, archaeologist and naturalist, together with Heather, operate the “Australian Yowie Research Centre”, “Australian Cryptozoological Research Centre” and the “Australasian Cryptozoological Research Centre” at Katoomba NSW where they live. They frequently tour the country lecturing on their findings. Their files bulge with thousands of reports on a wide variety of phenomena apart from their Cryptozoological and Relict Hominological [ie Yowie] researches.
Currently celebrating 50 years as the founding ‘father’ of Yowie and Australian Cryptozoological research, Rex Gilroy, Australia’s first and foremost ‘Yowie Man’, is able to draw upon his lifetime of dedicated field research in the preparation of this book, and also two more books on the Yowie mystery to follow this massive work now before the reader.
