An Australian TV channel captured rare footage of a series of waterspouts that rose over New South Wales coast on Monday.

The spouts reached up to 600 meters in sky, the channel said.

The waterspout in Australia was non-tornadic, though flash floods and heavy rains have lashed other parts of the state.
