Just before 8am (local time) on Wednesday, Dawson was arrested by Queensland Police detectives in the presence of Strike Force Scriven investigators at Biggera Waters on the Gold Coast.

10 News First reporter Matthew Howard reported that he would instead be extradited on Thursday.

After his wife's disappearance he moved one of his 16-year-old pupils into his house and they would later marry.

He has always denied any involvement with his wife's death and his family said in a statement they expected him to be found not guilty.

NSW police had amassed "an enormous amount of evidence".

Lyn Dawson was last seen in Sydney's northern beaches in January 1982.

According to the newspaper, 27 million people have listened to the podcast worldwide.

An Australian man has been arrested after a podcast shed new light on the disappearance of his wife 36 years ago.

"She was trying to prepare herself but nothing prepares you for this", McNally said.

Once he returns to NSW he will be formally interviewed by police, and is expected to be charged with her murder.

Earlier this week, the ODPP provided advice to police, and following further inquiries, detectives applied for an arrest warrant before travelling to Queensland, police said.

NSW police have stated they are comfortable with the strength of the case against Dawson despite not finding the body of Lyn.

"We would like to have found the body of Lynette Dawson, not just for the evidence but for the family, and we certainly will not give up on the search", he said.

That evidence came in the form of two additional witness statements described as "corroborative, not crucial" by the head of the Homicide Squad, Detective Superintendent Scott Cook.

He was refused bail and extradition to NSW was granted.

Her family, two coroners and the current NSW police commissioner think she was killed.

"It's taken a long haul but it's going to be a very good Christmas for our side of the family knowing that we've finally got somewhere", he said.

"For it to finally happen it nearly doesn't seem real yet to me".

In recent months it has captivated the world after The Australian's investigative podcast series The Teacher's Pet, for which reporter Hedley Thomas and producer Slade Gibson won the Gold Walkley, Australian journalism's highest honour.

The former Newtown Jets rugby league player, who is at the centre of the popular Teacher's Pet podcast, appeared in Southport Magistrates Court today with his head bowed, wearing a t-shirt, shorts and bare feet.
