Lake Crackenback

We went to Lake Crackenback (near Thredbo) for lunch today. It was surprisingly sunny and warm – and so busy! Such a big summer holiday destination.

Thredbo Landslide Memorial

The memorial to the 1997 Thredbo landslide. It is next to us – this is the view from where we are staying. In July, 1997, two chalets collapsed down the slope (and it’s even steeper than I expected), killing eighteen. Only one person survived after being trapped for a number of days in the middle of winter.

The old building where ours now is was pulled down afterwards – I’m not sure if it was also damaged or just unsafe.

Wednesday evening in Thredbo

The view from our apartment this evening. It’s still really warm here.

Thredbo

Just arrived in Thredbo for a five-night stay. Our building’s entrance is exactly where the deadly 1997 landslide happened. It is hot(ish) in the mountains today, but it’s meant to cool down while we’re here.
