Self-guided Audio Tour
An extremely rare surfboard has been stolen from the busy seaside town of Manly while the surfer was grabbing a coffee from a local cafe.
The surfboard is very valuable and is owned by a local surfer named Henry. Local police think that the crime was part of an international crime syndicate who have stolen it, and so requested extra help from from the best detective around - you.
You'll have to go and speak with Henry, and investigate around the Manly, area to find out who stole the surfboard - and where they might be heading with it. But be quick - we can't let them escape the country with Henry's rare surfboard!
