Snow at the Footie; it Does Get Cold in Australia

A good reason to promote travel to Thailand by Australians at this time of the year.

Snow has fallen on Canberra’s Manuka Oval during Friday night’s Australian Football League (AFL) clash between the Hawks and the Giants.

It’s believed to be the first time an AFL match has seen a dusting of snow in the league’s history. Spectators in the crowd could be seen wearing ski masks and goggles as they braced the freezing conditions.

One commentator quipped “It’s a winter’s game, but it’s not a snow sport.”
