Development of Skiing
Skiing in Australia commenced at the Kiandra goldfields in 1861. Miners from overseas introduced the knowledge and techniques of ski or "snowshoe" construction to others during the Winter of 1861. This was a particularly harsh winter and many up to 10,000 miners had left for easier pickings elsewhere. Those that stayed on amused themselves by skiing straight down the local "Township Hill". Over the years this developed into one on one drag-racing in a knock-out format to achieve an ultimate winner.
