The wild weather has left the airports of Queensland in chaos with a number of flights to Sydney and Melbourne canceled.
Jetstar, Virgin and Qantas passengers were left behind at Brisbane Airport and the Gold Coast because the airlines canceled part of their inbound and outbound flights.
Kingsford Smith Airport in Sydney currently only operates one runway, as 61 km / h of wind is registered in the area.
The Bureau of Meteorology has warned that the damaging wind is currently being broken by Sydney, the Illawarra, Southern Tablelands, Snowy Mountains and South Coast regions.
Wind gusts of 115 km / h have already been recorded at places such as Thredbo in southwest NSW.
& # 39; An approaching cold front generates a strong northwest to southwest wind, & # 39; says the BOM website.

& # 39; This front is predicted to pass through the city later tonight and Saturday. & # 39;
& # 39; The wind is expected to decrease later on Saturday after the passage from the front. & # 39;
Wormongong, Nowra, Bowral, Batemans Bay, Moruya Heads, Katoomba, Goulburn, Cooma, Bombala, Thredbo and Perisher locations are affected by snowstorms.
State Emergency Services (SES) advises people to move vehicles under cover or away from trees and to attach loose objects around the house.
& # 39; The NSW National Parks and Wildlife Service recommends postponing travel inland until conditions improve & # 39 ;, BOM warned.
The cold front comes after the brutal wind caused a tree to fall in the Blue Mountains suburb of Katoomba on Thursday evening.
Mother-of-four Dearne Fulcher, 50, was driven by her son Dylan when the tree hit their Volvo, on Victoria Street around 7 p.m.
Mrs. Fulcher was killed while Dylan, 20, suffered horrific injuries and was flown to Westmead Hospital in western Sydney.
Another three people are dead and two were rescued when a yacht sank from Newcastle for Thursday.
A catamaran with five on board capsized in rough seas 13 km from Stockton Beach at around 10 a.m.
Marine rescue volunteers and a Westpac helicopter flew to an emergency signal and found a 40-year-old man and a 16-year-old girl clinging to the sinking boat.
Paramedics brought them to safety when rescuers found three adults dead in the water in the chaotic and & # 39; very confronting & # 39; scene.
The man and the girl were taken to John Hunter Hospital where they are treated for hypothermia.
