The week’s news in pictures | October 21, 2017

Each week our journalists and photographers cover some great stories and take some amazing photos. 

We collate the best of the best at the end of the week and add them into a weekly gallery so you can see what’s been happening right around the region. 

Our favorite photo, and cover photo for our gallery this week comes from Bendigo.  Young 14-year-old Georgie Welsh has set a new kettlebell world record! An impressive feat for such a young person.
