Mulgildie

Mulgildie is a rural village in the Upper Burnett district, 120 kilometres west of Bundaberg city and 10 kilometres south of Monto. Mulgildie has a very active hotel, a grocer, the primary school and a sawmill.

The legend of the Mulgildie bunyip has lived long in Australian history. Elders and long-time cattlemen have told of bubbling water, disappearing cattle and eerie sensations throughout the generations.

The Bunyip hole is a still pool blanketed with green slime and largely remains silent except for the occasional buzz of birds and flies. Known to bubble and gurgle, some Aboriginal elders believe the hole is connected to a network of underground waterways.

On the side of the highway as you enter Mulgildie stands a tall statue of the famed bunyip. He looks like a cross between a crocodile and a small dinosaur, and he's the creation of Brett Benecke. The bunyip statue, which holds a cow's skull in one arm and a lungfish in the other, is made of 6mm plate mild steel and took 18 months to construct.
