Information

Somewhere on Bald Hill is the actual crash site of Southern Cloud, an Avro 618 Ten, an early passenger aircraft. It went missing on a flight from Sydney to Melbourne in May 1931 with 6 passengers and a crew of 2. A search failed to find it and its remains were not discovered until 27 years later when a Snowy Mountains Authority employee stumbled upon it. A memorial is located some distance away with information sign boards. See separate Place listing for Southern Cloud Memorial Viewpoint. This GPS coordinate for Bald Hill has been given by other enthusiasts who claim to have located the crash site.
