This photo from Queensland's border with New South Wales confirms what we've always known: Australia's weather is completely ridiculous.

It was posted by Josie Carter to the Higgins Storm Chasing Facebook page and is from southern Queensland... Yes, Queensland, apparently "Where Australia Shines."

The snow is falling on the border, and the Bureau of Meteorology predicts it might be the most significant snowfall in Queensland in 30 years.

The dusting was recorded at Eukey, Stanthorpe, and the Girraween National Park.

Best #snow in 30 years in Qld: BoM @abcnews #WinterIsComing #WinterIsHere

Even the Queensland tourism department were left asking, "What do we do with this stuff?"

Queensland: beautiful one day...bloody snowing the next.
