A voice second to nun

A Rockhampton nun has received local media attention for her regular participation in the annual World Coo-ee Championships at Coo-ee Bay near Yeppoon on the central Queensland coast.

ABC Radio Central Queensland reports that Sr Amarbile is one of "very few nuns in the world" to enter the Championships.

It describes her as a "world class coo-ee caller".

"You've got to bring the sound up from below and sustain it for as long as you can," she says.

Sr Amarbile has been entering the World Coo-ee Championships for years and says she has no plans to tone it down.
