31 Jan 2018 – The Great Lake Hotel in Miena in central Tasmania filmed this incredible footage of summertime snow falling on Tasmania’s higher peaks earlier this morning.
Kaylee Hattinger, the owner of the Central Highlands pub, said at 5.45am she saw the first flutters of snow.
“By 6.15am we were in the middle of a blizzard it was amazing,” she told Tom Elliott.
“The last time we had a significant snowfall that was out the season it was the 3 December and we probably had eight inches.
“It’s still only January!”
The Bureau of Meteorology reported snow above 900m. The snow hit just two days after the state sweltered through blistering heat.

“Whenever there is a wildfire in Australian summer, it is all over the Dutch news,” says Argiris. “But now there was a summer blizzard in Tasmania, and the MSM keeps quiet about it.”
