Spear Creek
It was a real-life Wolf Creek. In 1978, three friends left Alice Springs on an adventure exploring the Australian outback. Weeks later, a man walking his dog stumbled across their bodies in a remote area of bushland in North Queensland. They’d been hunted down and shot, one of the victims dying as he clutched hold of a tree. Police brought in to investigate were badly injured in a helicopter crash and soon after, the investigation stalled. The Courier-Mail explores one of Australia’s most forgotten mysteries: The Spear Creek murders. The killer is still out there.

Excellent
Live interviews are great and they delve deep into the lives and time of of the occurrence. And really speaks out to anyone that hey could be of assistance that may have seen something around the time. Well done team!

Very repetitive
I think the producers need to gather a bit more information before they continue with this podcast as there’s not much information and it’s just repeated in every episode.

Stilted but OK
I expected more from a professionally produced podcast - more interviews, a soundscape to give it mood/ambience, more accounts but for the most part we get a retelling of a story read off a script. Still a nice listen but not five star.
