Sydney -

A shark killed a woman as she swam with a group of swimmers off a popular Australian east coast beach.

Police said in a statement that the woman, in her 60s, was killed as she attempted to swim between the wharf and beach near the village of Tathra, south of Sydney.

Witnesses told police the woman was taken by the shark as she swam from the wharf back to the beach.

The Thathra Warf to Wharves - a swim from the wharf to the beach and back again - is an annual event that attracts hundreds of swimmers each summer.

Police said a helicopter and boat were being used to search for remains. - Sapa-AP
