Note:

“It isn’t until 1835 that more widespread weather records become available from a number of locations outside of the Sydney region… The first stand-out event in the record appeared in 1835-36 when very cold conditions were reported, especially in the winter of 1836… On the bitterly cold morning of 28 June, 1836, Sydney was blanketed in snow. The Sydney Morning Herald reported: ‘About seven o’clock in the morning a drifting fall covered the streets, nearly an inch in depth… a razor-keen wind from the west blew pretty strongly at the time and altogether, it was the most English like winter morning… ever experienced.’ … Heavy snowfall was also reported in Hobart that same month, suggesting that freezing conditions swept across the south-east of the country that winter… This cold and wet interval coincides with the height of what is referred to as the ‘Little Ice Age’, a global cold period in recent geological history that spanned 1300-1850. In Australia, one of the peaks of this cool interval occurred during the early nineteenth century, as calculated from a network of independent paleoclimate observations including tree-ring and coral records from the region.”
