Hi Marina
You can add Scimex.org<x-msg://280/Scimex.org>  (it’s a breaking science news portal for Australian and NZ journalists but there’s nothing to stop members of the public getting the latest science research news and commentary on contentious issues there)

Of course ScienceAlert has science news (amongst other things) http://www.sciencealert.com/

And then there’s ScienceDaily.com<https://www.sciencedaily.com/> and www.newswise.com/<http://www.newswise.com/> (if you’re not specifically after Australian sites)

Cheers
Susannah
