if you drive from Newcastle to Cairns it is actually quicker to go via charters towers, if you go inland then up is the shortest route but if they drove up the coast then out to the Towers it would be out of the way

this is so sad. I hope for Penno's family's sake something comes of this. I am looking forward to episode 2. I am following this case on Facebook I think there is an inquest coming. Have you seen Jayden Penno-Tompset? Last seen in Charters Towers
