Tributes Flow For 21 Y.O. Killed By Falling Tree Branch At Lost Paradise

Tributes are flowing for Harriet Nixon, the 21-year-old girl who tragically died at Lost Paradise Festival in NSW‘s Central Coast after she was hit in the head by a falling tree branch.

Nixon was rushed by helicopter to Westmead Hospital in a critical condition, suffering head, shoulder and spinal injuries, but later died in hospital.

The Australian National University student is being remembered as a kind, outgoing person whose involvement in the wider community, particularly in the hockey club and Canberra‘s annual Civic2Surf, made her a much-loved member of the community.

A shrine was erected at Lost Paradise in honour of her memory, with the quote, “You can thank me tomorrow.”


According to the National Party‘s Southern Highlands Branch – of which Nixon’s parents have long been members – her funeral will take place this Friday at her old school, Oxley College. The family has expressively asked for a dress code of colour, pearls, R.M. Williams and absolutely no black.
