It's interesting to hear of Cletracs up in Queensland. In the 1920s and 30s they were the only oversnow vehicles to operate in substantial numbers, mostly to Victorian Railways owned ski hotels such as the Buffalo Chalet and the Feathertop Bungalow.


A fan of that sort of thing has an oversnow website, the page for pre-war Australian Cletracs is at http://australianalpinoversnow.blogspot.com.au/2011/09/cleveland-tractor-company.html

There is a Cletrac on display at the Tamborine Mountain Heritage Centre in SE QLD with the Cletrac viewable on google street view as it is just inside the fence http://www.tmheritagecentre.com.au/home

While the Crabbes Creek cletrac powered sugar tramway was part of the Condong mill system just south of the NSW state border, it is in the region generally visited by QLD based rail researchers as it is only about two hours south of Brisbane.
