Hail turns NSW town of Malua Bay white a day after heatwave

Tuesday October 15, 2013 - 20:48 EDT

A day after the mercury soared above 30 degrees Celsius in parts of the New South Wales south coast, Malua Bay woke up white.

A hail storm the previous night had blanketed the sleepy town south of Bateman's Bay with ice.

Drivers had a tricky time negotiating the ice-covered streets, as this YouTube video shows.



Here's another view of the town's usually sandy beachfront.



Meanwhile, video taken at the scene showed kids - big and small - making toboggan rides while the sun shined, using boogie boards to slide over what are normally sand dunes.

We have trawled the web to find some of the better pictures and social media posts.

Enjoy.
