Cry of the Bunyips is set two years after The Mind of the Dolphins, continuing the adventures that began with Barefoot Times and Call of the Delphinidae.
For Joel Morison, a quiet holiday with the Collins family in Victoria's Bunyip State Park goes horribly wrong when twelve-year-old David disappears while bushwalking.
