Some members were seen waving cricket bats in the air.
Oncoming cars were also slowed to a crawl as the clash spilled onto the road.  
Police and the riot squad were eventually called in to break up the violence. 
'No arrests were made and investigations are ongoing,' a New South Wales police spokesperson said. 
Another video captured the bloody aftermath of the brawl with one person found comatose on the footpath.
The person is seen lying unresponsive as nearby onlookers shine a light in his face while several others film the man.
Some of the videos have already raked in more than 400,000 views.   
Local business owner Nitin Setia condemned the brawl. 
'It was not good what has happened,' he told 9News.
'It's really bad for the community here.'
The brawl is reported to have escalated after a bitter feud between Punjabi and Harayana community members on TikTok.
Punjab and Haryana are neighbouring states in north India that have clashed over several local issues. Punjab crosses the border to Pakistan. 
The states have feuded over sharing of water from the local Sutlej Yamuna Link canal as well as fighting over the rights to call the Indian city of Chandigarh as their capital.
