True Crime Mallacoota

Mallacoota Crime, wow it was hard to find. Which is so odd. Where there are people usually there is a crime. Although something that might resonate with over-policed communities – Mallacoota didn’t get a police station until much later than this research takes place.
So I found a smuggler, attempted poisoning, some odd deaths, a couple of manhunts… one for a potential murderer and another for some joyriders also known as car thieves.

Listen to the true-crime episode of Mallacoota Victoria.

Ooh another place that is remote and isolated which has some crime stories – in the Victorian High Country is Wonnangatta – great for four-wheel or recreational driving. You can find the story about a murder and a developing local story, the legend of Buttons.

Enhance your listening by joining Patreon! There you will find an episode about the Gentlemanly Bushranger, is that an oxymoron or what? We discuss that. A coin counterfeiter, which feels like he kept copying himself over and over, did he ever get it right? Another is of a tragic architect, how does one fall from such an esteemed position to die as a footnote of his apprentices’ story? What brings a policeman, mailman and publican together in one episode? It’s murder. The Shady Creek Murder. I have also become obsessed with the small ghost of Yallourn, Victoria. It fuelled the majority of the power industry in Gippsland. There are an hour and a half on the bushfire and subsequent 1944 Royal Commission, with more episodes coming about the SEC and Yallourn.
