Wollongong residents awoke to an unusual sight in the city this morning - a trail of white paint that twisted through the CBD.
Vandals splattered paint across pathways, walls and even cars overnight, causing considerable damage and a headache for those attempting to avoid the mess.
Wollongong City Council have attempted to cordon off the paint, but said they will not be able to clean up the trail of destruction until the oil-based paint dries, which could take a few days.
In the meantime, residents are urged to watch their step and avoid the wet paint.
Anyone with information on the incident is asked to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
