NSW Government to allocate further resources to Coroners Court following Bondi Junction incident


The NSW Government will allocate up to $18 million in additional funding to the Coroners Court allowing an extensive and timely inquest into the Bondi Junction incident.

The tragic events will be the subject of a mandatory inquest by the NSW State Coroner, Her Honour Magistrate Teresa O’Sullivan.

This funding will allow the inquiry to proceed with trauma-informed care for victims and families, including appropriate family liaison supports.

This allocation will give the court certainty and ensure other inquests and inquiries are not delayed.

It is expected the funding will allow an additional Deputy State Coroner to be appointed to oversee other inquests and inquiries during the course of the Bondi Junction inquest.

This is consistent with the approach taken following the Lindt Café siege.

The thoughts of our state and nation are with those impacted by this tragedy, and the NSW Government is committed to ensuring victims and their families are supported over the days and months ahead.
