Hunter community still healing on bus crash anniversary

Today marks one year since a bus crash in the NSW Hunter Valley claimed the lives of 10 wedding guests and injured 25 others.

On June 11, 2023, the coach crashed at a roundabout near Greta while transporting 35 guests from a wedding venue in the Hunter Valley to Singleton.


Rebecca Mullen, Darcy Bulman, Zach Bray, Tori Cowburn, Angus Craig, Nadene McBride, Kyah McBride, Andrew Scott, Lynan Scott, and Kane Symons were killed in the collision.

A memorial garden opened three days ago to commemorate the victims of the crash along the Branxton to Greta Memorial Shared Pathway, on the New England Highway, where family members have left tributes to their lost loved ones.

Family members of the victims left tribute messages in the memorial garden.

Today, NSW Premier Chris Minns said the “impact” of the crash was “felt nationwide.”


“Communities were left heartbroken in Victoria, Queensland, and Tasmania, and in the tightknit NSW towns of the region – like Branxton, Cessnock, and Singleton,” Minns said.


“Their grief continues to this day.


“For survivors, the first anniversary will be another painful step in this process.”


“For the families and friends of those killed and injured, this date will stir many emotions.
