Hail turns NSW town of Malua Bay white a day after heatwaveTuesday 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.
