Heartbreaking images have shown a whale with a net caught around its mouth - before rescuers' attempts to free the animal were ended by bad light.

The whale was spotted off the coast of Vaucluse in Sydney's east about 2.15pm on Saturday with a net and rope wrapped around its mouth.

The photos taken at Bondi Golf Course showed the struggling mammal come within 100m to 200m of the cliff face.
