Warily, I steer the Yowie mobile around a hairpin bend. There's just enough room to park on the narrow verge and to gaze down over a thick forest to a vast expanse of water. On the far side of the millpond, thick fingers of heavy cloud hide the top of rugged mountains which tower high above the water on all four sides. It's quiet. Unnervingly so. A lone, small boat slowly makes its way towards an island, leaving a near perfect wake.
