Just off the well-beaten track of eastern central Queensland lies the remains of an old highway, one that stretches from the towns of Mackay to Rockhampton. The Old Bruce Highway, as it’s officially known, is an easy sightseeing route for families looking to relive the old 1950s and 60s road trips, or for people who prefer not to walk the road less traveled by.
But the Crystal Highway guards a secret: since the 1960s, people have been found dead or gone missing along that road. Not only have those travelling alone been targeted, but whole families.
Join Holly and Matthew as they examine Queensland’s second murder road, the Crystal Highway.
