The rural road toll now sits at 152, compared to the 49 in metropolitan areas.

Assistant Commissioner of NSW Police, Michael Corboy, says that these risks are what Police will continue to focus on in the hope that they can change driver behaviour.

The fight started on Langtree Avenue, before spilling out into the street and into the mall. Both males and females were involved in the fight, with officers using footage from Safe City Cameras.

Officers will continue to work with venue owners and investigate violence around the region.


Sunraysia residents can take steps to keep their homes safe with Mildura Police encouraging us to step up security.

Our side and rear windows are considered extra vulnerable as they can’t be seen from the street.

Tight fitting dowel will stop the window from being slid open, with screws in the window frames stopping them from sliding upwards.

Officials say these steps may be small, but, they can protect the valuable contents of your home.
