Park visitors get rare snow showFriday October 12, 2012 - 11:09 EDT
Yesterday's wintry blast brought snow to western Victoria.
Visitors to the Grampians National Park were greeted with a light dusting of snow at Mount William.
Grampians Tourism's Will Flamstead says it is a rare sight for this time of year.
"You don't often see snow this late or this far into spring but it doesn't surprise us ... it's a really cool day up here and it's a great novelty to have that on the Grampians," he said.
"It looks fantastic."
He says the snow attracted a fair amount of interest from both residents and tourists.
"Look, I think it's a bit of excitement and we are getting a lot of inquiries from people in western Victoria wanting to come and have a look, so yes from a day visitor perspective, yes absolutely," he said.
