It snowed all the way up the Great Dividing Range to Queensland recently, and readers of The Land newspaper were able to capture the magic moments and scenes.

Snow was as thick as 18cm near Oberon as the snow event unfolded. Some roads were cut by snow in the central-west, especially about Bathurst.

For many it was a magic moment in what has been a long-running and tiring drought.

It's also been the biggest start to the snow season in the Snowy Mountains in 20 years with major resorts getting more than 80cm of snow in the last two weeks.
