Wow , awesome feature caught on camera there. My thoughts on those pics would sway towards a Gustnado, given the closeness and aspect to a right moving cell to the gustfront. Its certainly a very solid cloud vapour formation. Yes fast moving cells brings back memories of Feb 7th early this year near Merriwa to Scone chase in the Upper Hunter.Certainly something that can be further investigated and analyised. :)

My first thoughts were Gustnado on a Gust Front / Shelfie moving through. The front of it looks too ragged (as in outflow pushing it out) for a Wall cloud. I have seen a few similar to this that produce some very sus looking lowerings. Will try and drag out a photo or vid capture from somewhere.
