Hi probert - you take your chances with the snow cover in June. Sometimes it can be fantastic and other times it's just not there although there is usually a reasonable coverage of man made snow on a few slopes these days.

Late July, August and early September is usually best for snow in Australia.

June snow falls are highly unreliable in Australia - you are probably looking at 1 in every 10 years for a good June snow coverage where all/most runs and lifts are open. Plus, skiing in Australia is ridiculously expensive - on snow accommodation especially so. You are probably planning to travel in Australia at that time of the year, but since you are from Wales, it would be better for you to ski in Europe from both a snow and cost point of view.
