There was a celebration of life at the Byron Bay Lighthouse this morning as the first ray of sunlight for 2018 lit the east coast. Hundreds took part in a special meditation session to mark the start of the New Year.
A Narrandera woman has given birth to a healthy baby girl after remarkably driving herself to Wagga Hospital while in labour. Baby Isabella Freund takes the crown of being the first baby born in the Riverina in 20-18.
As partygoers gathered to celebrate the arrival of 20-18, it was mayhem in our hospitals. Emergency staff were swamped with alcohol and assault-related injuries overnight, while police are investigating an aggravated break and enter in Bourkelands. A man was allegedly assaulted with a wooden weapon, as intruders escaped with a large sum of cash.
