Yes, it can snow in Australia, in limited areas compared to the entire area of the continent.

Winter time sees excellent snowfalls for skiing in the Snowy Mountains region of southeastern New South Wales and northeastern Victoria. Central Tasmania also sees good snowfalls. These falls usually only start in June at the earliest - usually July - and continue through August, tapering off in the early months of Spring. Several of Australia's main snow resorts include the Kosciuszko National Park in NSW (Charlotte's Pass, Thredbo, Blue Cow) and Victoria (Mt Bogong, Fall's Creek, Mt Hotham, etc).

Snow also falls (rarely) in southwest Western Australia, the southeast of South Australia, and occasionally in the highlands of Tasmania, Victoria, NSW (e.g. Blue Mountains to Orange, and in the New England region around Armidale) and even southern Queensland on the border around Stanthorpe.

Of Australia's major cities, Canberra is the most likely to receive snow, followed by Hobart.
