yep.

20ft+ with 20 second periods??????

that sounds like an old sailors tale.

would take a very special system to produce that on the east coast.

So this summer, hot, humid, more storms / cyclones, and more rain?
in a nutshell basically. i think higgins stormchasers said something outlandish like 25 forecast cyclones in australian waters this summer.


that's eyepopping!

Sure it wasn't 1967, Nick?
There were about 5 cyclones that year, some of which went extra-tropical.

I've got reports of 30ft waves in Sydney in mid-May 1968.
Pine trees were washed away at Brighton le Sands.

Haven't found anything in June?

I'd love to see the pic, it apparently wasn't a major erosion or flooding event.

Somewhat related:

https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/articl ... -Eden.html

June 2016: The largest wave ever recorded in New South Wales was measured earlier this week during violent storms that lashed Australia's east coast - smashing the previous record by several metres.

A wave measuring 17.7 metres in height - as tall as a six storey apartment building - was recorded off the coast of Eden, on the state's south coast at 4.30am on Monday.

The wave passed the previous record measured in April last year, when a Sydney buoy recorded a 14.9 metre wave.

Yeah, but waverider buoys weren't deployed in Qld until August 1968, and I think 1972 in NSW.

Saw a spot on ABC news from Northern Territory weather person - expecting an “early” monsoon and a long season of very unsettled weather.
