12 Aug 2019 – Record snowfall in Australia
Shot by Sydney man Stephen Grenfell near a sheep farm outside Goulburn, about 121 miles west of Sydney, a large mob of kangaroos was spotted frolicking in the snow. The video has already racked up more than 700,000 views.
“Not something you see every day in Australia,” said Grenfell. “Kangaroos in the snow.”
After strong winds and freezing winter conditions swept across three south-eastern states, parts of the country experienced rare snowfall.
The snowfall also led to road closures outside of Sydney, while the cold caused flight cancellations and power cuts in about 10,000 homes in the south of the country.
Meanwhile, record snowfall hit the Bathurst and Blue Mountains, with Perisher and Thredbo also seeing plenty of fresh powder.
Victoria’s snowfields were also hit with more than a meter (more than 3 ft) of snow over the weekend, with more expected early this morning.
The Bureau of Meteorology said it had been the most low-level snow recorded across Victoria in more than a decade.
