No, it's not a hoax, snow did fall on Uluru on 11 July 1997. So rare is this weather phenomena that no record of such an event appears in any stories of the local Pitjantjatjara Anangu people.

Located in central Australia, temperatures around Uluru have been known to fall below zero but usually there is no precipitation in winter to create snow. A surprise to those visiting 'the Rock', it also made for an interesting news item.
