They call them the ‘bulldozers of the bush’ but this baby Common Wombat’s earth moving skills are yet to be fully tested as she makes a recovery from a car accident that killed her mother near Moruya.

Much to the widespread relief of what was now a stro

Surf Lifesaving NSW are reminding swimmers that rips are the number one hazard on Australian beaches.
The best way to avoid a rip is to swim at a patrolled beach between the red and yellow flags.

Rips are complex, can quickly change shape and location, and at times, are difficult to see. The things to look for are;
Deeper, dark-coloured water.
Fewer breaking waves.
A rippled surface surrounded by smooth waters.
