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.
