Kapunda Snow

Kapunda Snow


In June 1909 Kapunda, Allendale and Eudunda Ranges were covered in a snow!
In our modern times this is almost unheard of, but in the early 1900's, it would seem it was a regular occurrence.
 Snow was reported in the Kapunda Herald (newspaper) in 1901, 1906, 1908 as well as 1909 falling steadily, and in enough volume around the district for locals to build snowmen!
