I was hiking around Cradle Mountain in Tas in December a number of years ago and was walking in 1-2ft of snow

A couple of years ago, a bus load of Japanese tourists had to be rescued from Bluff Knoll (SW WA) because of an unseasonal snow fall.

Don't the Bunyas get snow most winters?

I have been to the snow in Hawaii in summer, Israel and Turkey in summer, NZ and Mt Buller at Christmas. Oh Yeah have seen a chick with snow up her A$$ Crack after falling over in Canada which is a pretty unusual place.

I seem to remember it snowed in Sydney one year a while ago and Melbourne too.

They were talking on the radio the other day about good snow in Melbourne in 1952, but the weather bureau deny it ever happened. Mass illusion, probably.

I remember seeing it on the tele, the kids were out in the snow throwing snowballs at each other the tv crew said it was a suburb of Melbourne, i'm talking the 90s, i'm bloody sure of it, unless i dreaming or drinking or something.

No, probably not dreaming. "Melbourne suburbs" of recent times includes a fair area of the Dandenongs - places like Olinda - that probably get a decent snowfall every couple of years. The Sydney equivilent would be Katoomba, which could be called suburbs. The 1952 fall was different to that - Camberwell and Hawthorn etc received a blanketing (according to those who were there). The weather bureau were no doubt thinking of the CBD when they denied it. But I have heard people say they have seen snowflakes falling on Collins St - but only a few flakes.

In June 1991, we drove into snow going up the Moonie Range behind Tamworth and it covered the ground thickly for 250 kms north into Queensland. The previous time I had driven the same road in January 1991, it was 40 something the whole way up.
