Watch: Huge spider web blankets bushland in Australia

A blanket of spider webs have been seen billowing over the grasslands of Victoria on Monday (June 14), as shown in an eyewitness video taken on Gippsland.

Thousands of spiders and their webs have blanketed bushland in Australia's state of Victoria, after heavy rain and flooding hit the region.

The spiders moved to higher ground to escape the saturated land, local media reported, spinning giant cobwebs in order to shelter themselves from the damp.

A low-pressure weather system brought flooding in Gippsland last week, leading to at least one fatality, and an evacuation order issued for residents in the town of Traralgon.

Watch the video above for the extraordinary footage.
