Did you catch the link to an old Aussie documentary about him which I posted the other day?

I found it really charming especially the way they were referring to the tiger as 'extinct on the mainland'. Obviously early 80s or before.

I think i missed that one, though i have seen a few with him on youtube. Somer of my Aussie mate who have met him think he might be austistic. He won't talk to people he just lectures them and igf they walk away he carries on talking to nothing!

Definitely not mistaken-identity. The aboriginals are a bit rough-looking but clearly human. They said gorilla head and long arms. I imagine there was some longer hair throughout as well.

I wonder what they'd make of you?

I didn't hear either the women or the interviewer mention any indigenous people. It would come across as quite crass.

This is a Desert man of high degree. I will call him NgumanJiya. He is the receptacle of knowledge of the natural world and the Tjukurpa [The Dreaming] for possibly over forty thousand years. He can repeat what the generations saw when the interior changed from forest to desert, Old Men who watched the Spencer Gulf flood due to the ending of the last European ice age have spoken through Him, Those who hunted Mega Fauna speak through him. This knowledge has been repeated orally, word perfect, for possibly sixteen hundred generations, and he has repeated it to numerous young aboriginal men who have gone through the 5 levels of Aboriginal Law. He will have made them repeat it back to Him until it was word perfect.

Clearly Human...

I have a memory of reading something about Brown Jack or Black Jack. A type of humanoid creature related to the aborigines. Does that ring a bell with anyone?

The 'Brown Jack' or 'Little Brown Jack' label is most often applied to a smaller version of the yowie. Some accounts blur the distinction or even attribute the 'brown jack' label to the yowie.

In Australia, they call their giant hairy bigfoot-like creature a “yowie.” As it turns out, there is a long history of sightings of not only yowies, but a smaller variety that they refer to as a “brown jack.” I was a bit surprised at this, but the consistency of reports clearly indicates the presence of both species. Yowies seem to match the description of the typical North American bigfoot, but brown jacks are smaller, rarely exceeding four feet in height.

Aboriginal lore supports the existence of smaller hairy men in Australia, the yuuri (pronounced ‘yawri’, not unlike yowie) or ‘brown jack’, which fulfill a similar role to that of European elves and leprechauns – they guard certain places, grant favours and play tricks on people. The yowie certainly seems to have more in common with these creatures than they do conventional flesh-and-blood primates or relict hominids.

The Junjudee is Australia’s “little hairy man” opposed to our “big hairy man” the Yowie. It is also called the Njimbin, Junjari, Junjurrie plus other names depending on the region or indigenous language of the Australian Aborigines, of which there are many dialects. They are sometimes known as “brown jacks” by European Australians. Most researchers agree that Junjudee are not young or juvenile Yowies.

The Jundudee is described as being 3-4 feet tall, covered in thick hair three to four inches in length of varying colour. Short with a thick and stocky frame with an ape like face.

Having spent quality time in Australia, I am convinced that most Yowies are actually naked drunk Rugby players trying to get home unnoticed. Seriously, those guys were brain damaged animals before they started playing rugby. Most aren't even toilet trained https://deadspin.com/5311034/not-just-another-drunken-rugby-pooping-incident. There is even a Rugby team called the Kilcoy Yowies to illustrate my point. I am sure that if Yowies were real, they would be insulted and disheartened at the racist slur comparing them to rugby players represents. If this is the case, and there are any real yowies out there, I confess that the comparison is utterly undeserved and I unreservedly apologize, as I didn't know yowies were real.
