The Sydney commuters facing longer journeys due to train timetable ... - The Sydney Morning Herald

The biggest overhaul of Sydney's rail timetable in four years will result in more frequent trains for tens of thousands of commuters but for some it will mean longer travel times because they will have to switch services to get to their destinations.

When the timetable changes kick in next Sunday, those travelling from Campbelltown in Sydney's south-west to Parramatta, Granville, Strathfield and other stations on the Western Line will have to change trains at Glenfield. That is because T2 services will start from Leppington instead of Campbelltown.

Victorian cyclist, 67, found dead on road while riding from Sydney to Melbourne - The Sydney Morning Herald

A Victorian cyclist killed during a Sydney to Melbourne race was an experienced rider who would not take any risks, a member of his Melbourne club says.

Police are still investigating the tragic incident, but say it's possible he may have been struck by a vehicle, collided with wildlife, or fallen from his bike.

Phillip Maas from the Peninsula Pedallers Cycling Club said Mr Spargo was a passionate cyclist who rode an average of 1000 kilometres each month.

"He wasn't one for taking risks," he said. "With the number of kilometres he rode, he was certainly very experienced."

This may be Australia but this scene is far from your usual morning wake-up.

A New South Wales woman woke to find two kangaroos locked in a sparring session in her front yard.

The woman, from Crescent Head, is heard gasping as she calmly films the two male roos duelling in the built-up street.

The animals are first seen boxing each other before the fight appears to escalate.

At one point, the roos stand on their tails and kick each other with their legs.

The fight eventually ends when one of the roos wrestles the other to the ground, kicking it in the head.

While it may be rare to catch one on your front lawn, kangaroo boxing matches have been captured on camera several times.

When Kira Brown talks about her mixed Chinese and Anglo-Celtic heritage, she often receives one astounding response from people.

"They straight away say, 'You don't look very Chinese'," Ms Brown said, laughing.

"I try to explain to them that five generations ago, I had quite a bit of Chinese on my mother's side."

To prove her story, Ms Brown often shows visitors a vast collection of family materials she has inherited over the years.

The collection includes rare photographs, antiques, letters and personal items that illustrate the role her Chinese ancestors played in the early...

The Hello Koala Sculpture Trail includes about 60, one-metre high koala sculptures manufactured in fibreglass and painted in a unique array of designs by local artists.

NSW makes rego free for frequent toll users - CarAdvice

Drivers who spend more than $25 per week on tolls will get free registration in New South Wales, under a new State Government plan.

NSW Premier, Gladys Berejiklian, says the move is designed to help drive down the cost of owning a car in New South Wales.

“The majority of eligible motorists will save $358 a year on registration costs, with potential savings of up to $715 a year,” Berejiklian said today.

The scheme, which starts on July 1 next year, will be backdated, meaning motorists will be eligible for scheme if they’ve been spending $25 per week since the start of July 2017.

Savings will depend on how much your car weighs. Vehicles below 975kg will be eligible for a $272 saving, while owners of cars in the top 2505 – 2794kg registration bracket (think Toyota LandCruiser and Nissan Patrol) are $715 better off.

Any vehicle weighing more than 2795kg won’t be included in the scheme,...

Thunderstorm brings damaging winds to parts of NSW and ACT - ABC Online

A hand holding three large hailstones.

Large hailstones have pelted parts of the Blue Mountains and Canberra, as thunderstorms and damaging winds lashed New South Wales.

Earlier on Friday, the Bureau of Meteorology (BOM) issued severe thunderstorm warnings for several forecast areas in NSW, forecasting large hailstones and damaging winds across the state.

Duty forecaster Andrew Haigh said the severe thunderstorms, which were detected on the weather radar near the Mount Tomah Botanic Gardens and Bell, were produced during ideal conditions for storms.

"This is a particularly active day, it's definitely a more active thunderstorm day than average in NSW," he said.

"There is quite a lot of energy, quite a lot of humidity in the air at the moment, and quite a lot of instability in the upper atmosphere, and that's an ideal...

Natasha Crossman charged with murder of grazier partner Mathew Dunbar - ABC Online

Grazier Mathew Dunbar and his partner Natasha Crossman in a couple photo from their facebook page.

The partner of a New South Wales farmer who was found dead on his property earlier this year has been charged with his murder.

Grazier Mathew Dunbar died on his farm at Walcha in northern New South Wales in August.

A funeral announcement for the 42-year-old called for donations to mental health organisation, the Black Dog Institute, but police set up a strike force to investigate the death and treated it as suspicious.

Mr Dunbar's partner Natasha Beth Darcy was arrested on Saturday morning at the Walcha property where she lived with Mr Dunbar and was taken to Tamworth police station.

New South Wales Police say she was questioned on Saturday afternoon before being charged with murder.

The 42-year-old remains behind bars after appearing at Tamworth Local Court on Sunday.
