Murray Bridge Bunyip

So just before I was laying in bed trying to get to sleep when I remembered something really old. I remember traveling up to Murray Bridge to see the Bunyip.

The bunyip or kianpraty is a large mythical creature from Aboriginal mythology, said to lurk in swamps, billabongs, creeks, riverbeds, and waterholes. The origin of the word bunyip has been traced to the Wemba-Wemba language of Aboriginal people of South-Eastern Australia.

So I thought I’d quickly get up and make a post of this great old place at Murray Bridge here in my state and I even found a video on YouTube of what I wanted to show you.

This little coin operated machine scares the crap out of kids but since 2000 it was changed to the one you see in the video. Back when I was really young it looked much scarier and it even had a baby! But I can’t seem to find a video or picture of it.
