Just wondering if any snowfalls fell along the tablelands during 2017. Anywhere from Central to the Northern tablelands? I have not been able to find any photos of snow events during this period.

You'll find a few photos among the 'Alpine & Snow' forum from 2017, specifically Topic "2017 Australian Snow Season", the Guyra/Northern Tablleands thread and a couple of event-specific threads from 2017, but not that many. There may be some in the Victorian, NSW and Tas forums, although these would be harder to find.

While 2017 was a bumper snow season in Alpine areas, with big accumulations at the ski resorts (final snow depths at Spencers Creek were around 2.3 metres), there was not much snow at lower levels. The Central and Northern Tablelands therefore mostly missed out. Such cold fronts as did penetrate far enough North tended to lack moisture, much to the dismay of snow lovers here.

Might be worth looking at earlier years. Again from memory, 2012 and 2015 were good for snow in the Central Tablelands.

As Steve said not much really happened in 2017 in terms of low level snowfalls that far north.

The two 2015 snow events in July and October 2012 make for good reading.

October 12th, 2012 (very low level)

July 12th, 2015 Snowfall

July 17th, 2015 Snowfall (lots of low level pics from Bathurst, Southern Highlands, Blue Mtns etc)
The longer you wait for storms, the more you appreciate them.
