Thredbo Landslide 1997

30 July
The Thredbo landslide occurred at 11:30 pm on 30 July 1997. Part of a road embankment slid down the steep hillside into the ski resort village of Thredbo, in the Snowy Mountains in New South Wales. The landslide pushed Carinya Lodge off its foundations onto Bimbadeen Lodge at high speed burying the buildings under metres of rubble. In both lodges nineteen people were asleep. Upon recovery eighteen people were dead; one survivor was recovered from under debris thirty-six hours later.
