The NSW Government has announced a unique initiative to develop wilderness fishing opportunities via an eco-hut program.
 
The initiative involves the establishment of remote ‘eco-fishing huts’ in national parks and other areas across the State.
 
The first trial of a remote heritage-style hut is located in the Kosciuszko National Park which is close to a number of trout fisheries.
 
The trial is promoting ‘wilderness’ and ‘remote’ fishing opportunities to NSW anglers and their families.
 
The location of this hut means visitors have the opportunity to catch Rainbow Trout and Brown Trout from the Upper Murrumbidgee River and Tantangra Dam.

Police have been made aware of a new scam circulating the local area.

Scammers are impersonating Salvation Army Collectors.

They are asking people to sign up to a monthly donation through their bank.

They have nothing to do with the Red Shield Appeal or the Salvation Army.

This month The Salvation Army are hosting their annual red shield appeal doornock.

The doornock will take place on May 27th and May 28th.

Police say to contact scamwatch if you feel you've been made victim to the scam.

Fundraising coordinator for the Salvation Army Jess Lucas says an official salvation army volunteer will only ever ask for a one off donation.
