Police from Tweed/Byron LAC are preparing a report for the coroner after a 26-year-old Byron Bay woman died in an accident at a rural property on Tunnel Rd, Billinudgel on Sunday afternoon ( January 25).
Police believe that the woman was at the property with a number of other people to celebrate the Australia Day weekend.

The woman sustained serious injuries to her upper body. Resuscitation was commenced on her but she died at the scene.
The woman’s name has not yet been released.
