Lounge chair washes up on a beach in the wake of the New South Wales floods - swimmers find a FRIDGE

A blue leather chair and a fridge full of soft drinks are some of the items washing up on New South Wales beaches after the state was battered by heavy flooding. 

The recliner lounge seat was pictured at Ettalong Beach near Woy Woy, on the Central Coast, while another chair was spotted at Patonga, nearby. 

Both are believed to have washed up after days of flooding inundated people's homes in Wyong.

Some locals began to speculate where the chairs might have come from while others shared stories about other items they'd seen washed up from the floods. 

One shared a picture of a fridge full of drinks that had washed up nearby at Terrigal. 

'Plenty of stuff off shore yesterday from Terrigal. We dodged all kinds of stuff, lounges, washing baskets, fences. At about 15kms out we came across two fridges still with drinks in them,' the caption read.

Another said: 'A jacuzzi washed up on a beach around Taree.'

Some residents also left comment about the origins of the floating recliner.

'I'd say floated down the Hawksbury River,' another person wrote.

This fridge full of drinks was found floating 15km offshore of Terrigal 

Another blue couch was found washed up at a nearby beach in Patonga

'It's probably from Port Macquarie', another commented. 

While some viewers took the chance to poke some light-hearted fun at the out of place recliner.

'Couch surfing at its best', a user commented.

'Comfortable beach fishing!', one wrote.

'Waterfront property! Who do I contact for a rental application?', another joked.  

The beaches on the Central Coast remain closed until Tuesday due to water quality concerns after days of heavy rain. 

It comes after houses on the Central Coast were inundated with water as the area received 400mm of rain.

Local SES crews received more than 1,100 requests for assistance across the Central Coast. 

The State and Federal Governments also declared the flooding a natural disaster.
