The Emerald City… (You may have noticed the comment here.)  “David Williamson (Whose brother-in-law wrote the Oz-inspired musical Oz) wrote a play in 1987 called Emerald City. The term is used as a metaphor by the character Elaine Ross, describing Sydney as ‘the Emerald City of Oz’, where people go expecting their dreams to be fulfilled, only to end up with superficial substitutes and broken dreams.” – Wikipedia

The last time it snowed (to any extent) in Sydney was in 1836!
