Grantham flood inquiry: Three people missing after 2011 deluge in Queensland never found, commission hears
Three people who went missing during the deadly 2011 Grantham flood have never been found, an inquiry in Queensland has heard.
Two men stranded for nearly 24 hours with their sports car in deep snow at Mount Field, about 75 kilometres north-west of Hobart, have been rescued.
Rare snowfalls have blanketed the most unlikely parts of Tasmania, with farmers along the north-west coast waking up to white paddocks.
