Storm Swell: July 2020

The Bureau of Meteorology states an 11.5 metre wave was recorded just offshore in Sydney on the morning of July 15, with 9 metre swells also seen off Bateman’s Bay and Crowdy Head on the mid-north coast.

Photos taken from South Avalon Beach Headland, morning of July 15, 2020 - BIG waves breaking out the back and rising to cliff height where they hit the onshore rock shelf. A J Guesdon photos.

By Friday July 17, 2020 the large boulder that fell from North Avalon Beach headland in August 2017 had succumbed to the onslaught of waves and fell.
