Can anyone help me out with the name of a cyclone which formed about 10 years ago off the NSW coast, near Lismore? It was obviously unusual for a TC to form so far south - I remember Rebecca Le Tourneau did a feature on it. I think it made Cat 2.

Couldn't find it on the BOM's records.

Are you sure it was a cyclone? Seems unlikely. Probably a really good ECL that the media erroneously labled as a cyclone

Sounds like an ECL with wind strength as powerful as a category 2 cyclone. 2007 there were a few decent ECL along the NSW coast.
Records are MEANT to be broken.

Cyclone Dora formed in 1971. It originally formed in the tropics, however it lost cyclone intensity and reintensified to the east of the gold coast.

Cyclone Barbara crossed the coast at Lismore, just on 50 years ago.
