Sharks up to five metres long have swarmed a popular NSW beach after a whale carcass washed up on the rocks leading to a mass feeding frenzy.
Bulli and Sandon Point beaches near Wollongong on the state's south coast were closed on Thursday afternoon due to 'multiple large shark sightings'.
A day later monster sharks were spotted across the coastline circling around boats as local fishermen watched on in horror.

Jake Brisbane was out fishing with a friend in Bulli Beach on Friday morning when a shark leapt from the water and sunk its teeth into the boat's motor.

Police have since launched an operation
