Long, long ago, In Gondwana, there lived Tyawan, a Clever Man of the Gundungurra people. He had three daughters called Meenhi, Wimlah and Gunnedoo, whom he treasured above all else.
In a deep hole in the valley there lived a Bunyip, a huge evil creature who loved to feast on human flesh, particularly that of young girls and women.
If you needed to pass its hole it was important to be very quiet so that it was not disturbed.When Tyawan had to pass the hole, he would leave his daughters safely on the cliff above behind a rocky wall
One day while the three sisters were sitting on the rock they dropped a stone which echoed throught the mountains waking up the bunyip making it very angry. It approached the girls ready to eat them
But before the bunyip could eat them Tyawan used his magic bone and turned them into rocks. The angry bunyip then went and chased after him, so he turned himself into a bird
Tyawan dropped his magic bone in the forest and is still searching for it to change him and his daughters back to humans
