Images from Mt. Hotham in Victoria and Perisher in NSW Australia show a thick blanket of snow that fell on Australia’s main ski resorts.

Melbourne, Australia also just saw its wettest April since 1960 and its wettest start to the year since 1924, as unseasonably low temperatures brought snow to the state’s ski resorts.

Some Australian ski resorts have reported upwards of 18″ of new snow! Check out some of the photos below captured this week.

  1. Thanks for sharing. It is interesting to think that Australia and many places in the southern hemisphere are getting there first snow of the season. I might have to head down under.
