Probably the best actual town in NSW for snow (outside of the alpine villages) is Guyra, at 1330 metres on the New England tablelands:

This was taken today around the Oberon area in the central west of NSW.

The snowfalls were recorded at up to 20cm in the Blue Mountains, the heaviest in fifty years.

Here is another two:

Seems like I was there only a few weeks ago, and then I was hoping for snow. Looking at it now it would have made getting to Medlow Bath very difficult if not impossible as I was using public transport.

What really impressed me is the fact Sydney's rail system goes that high. Was watching an altimeter app on my phone rise over 1,000m at one stage before Katoomba. Such a gentle and long rise from Penrith & the Hawkesbury traveling west.

The train at left is a V set train, and still operate.
The single deck train is a U set train which ran until 1996.

I decided to go to Blackheath last Saturday to see the snow and went by public transport; train to Springwood then bus to Katoomba with a change to another bus to Blackheath. A bit slow between Springwood and Katoomba but all very smooth and quick coming back in the early evening.

I was quite impressed with the organisation of the public transport on the day.
