The Bunyip is a Summoning familiar which requires a Summoning level of 68. It is summoned using a Bunyip pouch. It is typically summoned during combat for its player-healing ability.


Bunyip pouch

A Bunyip pouch is made by using a Summoning pouch on a Summoning obelisk with 110 spirit shards, a Green charm and a raw shark in the player's inventory.

Swallow whole scroll

The Swallow whole scroll enables the use of the Swallow whole special ability for a Bunyip. Using a Bunyip pouch on a Summoning obelisk creates ten Swallow whole scrolls.


Swallow whole

Swallow whole is the special move of the Bunyip activated by using a Swallow whole scroll. It allows players to eat an uncooked fish (and gain the correct number of hitpoints corresponding to the fish eaten) if they have the cooking level to cook the fish. For example, using the scroll on a raw shark will heal 20 hitpoints as long as the player has a cooking level of 80 or higher. Each use of a scroll requires three special move points.

Players killing Waterfiends find this scroll useful as they drop Raw Lobsters, Swordfish, and Sharks occasionally, thus prolonging players' stay there. A player killing either Aquanites or Dagannoths will find a Bunyip very useful as well, because they drop mainly raw fish

Note that using the scroll does NOT count as eating. A fast clicker can use Swallow Whole on a fish without skipping an attack in combat.

You will not get Cooking xp for using the Swallow Whole scroll.


The Bunyip will automatically heal two Hitpoints approximately every 15 seconds up to a player's maximum. Note that the healing ability still works even if a player does not have any remaining Summoning points. The healing effect makes the Bunyip useful in single combat environments as it can restore up to 352 Hitpoints over its summoning duration of 44 minutes. This is roughly equivalent to a full inventory of lobsters or 17 cooked sharks. Raw fish drops can provide additional healing, see "Swallow whole" above for detail.

Currently, the price of a Bunyip pouch is 2,165 coins. If a single bunyip is used to heal 352 hitpoints, the cost of replenishing one hitpoint is about 6.15 coins.

Sometimes food cannot be replaced with a bunyip, if opponents deal damage faster than the bunyip can heal. It can be used as additional healing, though.

The healing effect of the Bunyip

Special ability

Players can use raw fish on a bunyip to get a random number of water runes. The maximum amount you can get from them depends on the fish you feed them - the maximum amount it can give is the same as the health the cooked version of the fish that it transmutes. For example, feeding the bunyip raw shrimp will create 1-3 water runes, while feeding it raw sharks makes 1-20. Therefore, feeding it fish that doesn't heal much and doesn't sell well is a good idea, to get Water Runes which can be sold or used. It can also make powerfishing a bit more profitable. Also you cannot use this feature with the leaping trout, leaping salmon or leaping sturgeon . Power fishing trout and salmon while having a Bunyip out can produce some decent income. Trout gives about 4x profit giving to bunyip to make into water runes while Salmon gives about 2x profit.


The Bunyip will only fight to defend itself. The player must also have auto-retaliate on.


A bunyip, in aboriginal Australian mythology, was a monster that inhabited swamps, billabongs, creeks, riverbeds and waterholes. It was said that at night, their cries could be heard as they devoured any unfortunate animal that came near their abode. Bunyips are described as slimy and smelly creatures.


  • When using the special feature of a Bunyip where a person can feed it some raw fish, The player will throw the Bunyip what looks to be a clownfish, yet these are unobtainable throughout RuneScape.
  • When talking to the Bunyip whilst a player has a Summoning level of at least 78, the Bunyip will appear to use an Australian accent which may be a relation to the mythology of the Bunyip.
  • At some small areas, the Bunyip may not appear right next to the player. When that happens, the Bunyip doesn't exist, but its effect will still occur. The Bunyip will spawn next to the player if the player moves to a larger area.
