Development Threatens Irreplaceable Koala Habitat

A controversial housing development at 150 Hermitage Road, Kurrajong, threatens to devastate a pristine koala habitat just 150 metres away, sparking outrage among local residents and environmental groups. The project could destroy one of the region’s most significant wildlife corridors, endangering koalas and other vulnerable species dependent on this critical ecosystem.

The development was approved by Hawkesbury City Council (HCC) in 2010 but has been dormant until now. Despite changes to environmental regulations and planning laws, it is allowed to proceed under the historical DA conditions, referred to as “Zombie DAs.”

Bypass to Finally Bring Relief to Pitt Town

After years of anticipation and delays, the long-awaited Pitt Town Bypass is finally set to become a reality.

NSW Premier Chris Minns announced the milestone during his visit to the Hawkesbury in June. “Starting today, the construction industry can submit proposals to build the crucial Pitt Town Bypass. This initiative will reduce congestion by diverting traffic away from Pitt Town, providing faster evacuations for Hawkesbury residents during floods. Transport for NSW plans to award the main construction contract for the bypass in 2025,” Minns said.

Local Studio that is Inspiring the Next Generation of Ballet Dancers

At just 16 years old, Mikaela Shedden has already danced her way to international acclaim. Starting ballet just four years ago, she quickly realised she needed to dedicate herself fully to the craft. Training more than 40 hours a week at The Ballet School Australia (TBSA), some days from 10 am until 9 pm, her commitment led to an invitation to the prestigious 5-week Summer Intensive in Houston, Texas – a program notoriously difficult to get into. Shedden, who left school after Year 10 to pursue ballet, says, “I knew I was already behind so I needed to catch up; I decided I had to risk something for it.”
