A small New South Wales town has become quite popular after it received a fair bit of snow overnight.

People have driven from all over the place to get a look at the white powder in Oberon.

While snow in the town in the state’s Central Tablelands does happen every now and then, the amount that fell was enough to get the town talking.

Naturally, locals have been pretty excited with many of them posting about their experience.


Residents from Lidcombe and Homebush even drove the 160km so their kids could see the snow.

They told 9NEWS, “About 9.30pm (yesterday) we got here and we’re just mucking around now playing with a bit of snow.”

Adding that he had been waiting for the snow to fall for weeks

He said, “Every week we just look at the weather saying ‘yeah it’s going to snow, it’s going to snow!’ and we finally got it.”


Sadly, it doesn’t look like the snow is going to stick around for long. 

Weatherzone senior meteorologist Jacob Cronje told,“It’s not uncommon for it to happen that far north. But it depends on the nature of the system and how extensive the cold air is across the region.

“It looks like the system is moving off the coast so we’re not expecting places that far north to receive any snow in the coming days at least.”

Mr Cronje also added that the Snowy Mountains should expect another “big snow event” this coming weekend.

They are predicting another 10cm of snow.
