I was down at Main Beach last night (passing some time before my choir rehearsal) and captured this eerie image from what is left of the beach. The wild weather last week has completely decimated the sand dunes and beaches along the entire Northern NSW and Southeast QLD coastline.
Heavy machinery is being used to shore up the dangerous scarp lines along the dunes and to provide access to the beaches again.
