About This Cartridge

Henry Gilbert Smith is known as The Father of Manly. He developed Manly for 25 years in the mid-late 1800s, donating many of its parks, building churches, hotels and houses, layout out the streets, and planting trees and gardens.

Henry has a problem. He has lost his kangaroo, Boomer. Together with his 9 year old nephew, Tommy, you will take a stroll through Manly, meet some of the locals, learn a bit about the history of Manly, and solve the mystery of the missing kangaroo.

The adventure should take around 2 hours and involves a leisurely 3km walk. It is all paved and nearly all of it is level so it is suited to all ages. If you want to you can look at some of the historical photographs and information built into the game at stops along the way, or you can ignore all the heritage guff and just play the game.

Now, where is that kangaroo? 

Starting Location

Fairlight Beach
