The 2 photos above came from the local paper "southern courier" web site where people post their photos. This is Coogee during the sand storm on September 23 2009. It seems that the last one like this in the Sydney area was in 1939. It was very strange to see everything orange.
The photo above the sand stormo ones is the same bay on a sunny "normal" day.
I am still finding sand inside after many attempts to clean it all.
