Hi joel 1357-ga,

I wrote the Queensland Climate Section of the Australian Bureau of
Meteorology and was told that snow has never occurred in the last 60
years in Brisbane. You can contact Nev with any further questions you
may have. (Website I found Nev?s contact info on)

This site mentions snow in Brisbane in 1871, New Year's Day.

Here is a blog about Brisbane weather, generally defined as "summer"
and "not summer".  You could sign on (bottom of the site) and ask one
of the natives.

This site about the Gold Coast and Brisbane area says bluntly: "Snow
does not fall."

Others agree.  People drive out to the west to look for snow.

This site and others mentions a severe hail strom on May 19th or 20th
2005, which could have been reported elsewhere as snow:

Here is another with pics:

Despite this, however, there is a "snow wholesaler" in Brisbane (well,
there may be some retailers too, but I don't think that is what you
are asking about).
Scroll down to Queensland on this site:

Maybe the wholesaler supplies the Zoo:

Enough, Myoarin
