West & Sth Coast, Tasmania
Two men stranded with their car in deep snow at Mount Field, about 75 kilometres north-west of Hobart, for nearly 24 hours 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.
A former employee at the Grantham quarry has told the Queensland Floods Commission of Inquiry that quarry waste was not used to build embankment walls around the site.
