Based on the 1974 Australian Children's Book Of the Year, The Bunyip of Berkeley's Creek, written by Jenny Wagner and illustrated by Ron Brooks. Emerging alone from Berkeley's Creek, the Bunyip travels the land seeking an answer to the question: "What am I?".
Handspan's adaptation was designed to tour in a small van and play indoors or outdoors. It toured until 1982, travelling to schools, festivals and community events in Australia and abroad.
