Best time to visit Melbourne?

What is the best time of the year to visit Melbourne and enjoy its attractions?


My personal favourite time in Melbourne has to be Spring, from September through to mid November

With all the new Spring growth throughout the parks and gardens that are scattered around the city, the temperate climate and the clear blue skies, it is the prettiest time to visit my hometown.

Of course if you are into swimming the clear safe waters of Port Phillip Bay, then the long, hot summers from late December through to early April is the best time.

Winter in Melbourne can be quite cold and wet, but the upside is there are less tourist to contend with and you just might be lucky to land yourself a dry and clear blue sky experience.

Late June through to late August is Melbourne's winter time, experience the snowy ice caps of Mt Baw Baw a couple of hours drive from Melbourne.

And of course there is nothing like the crisp, clear and clean air and all that The Dandenongs has to offer at this time

I hope that I have given you some ideas to help you choose your best time to visit my Melbourne. I am sure that whatever time you choose you will thoroughly enjoy yourself!

And Don't Forget To Be Sun Smart

You cannot feel or see UV (Ultraviolet radiation). We can see the sun's light and we can feel the sun's warmth (the infrared radiation). Our senses don't pick up on UV radiation and this is why it is so damaging.

Right across Australia this UV radiation varies, it being determined by the time of day, time of year, the weather including cloud cover, how close to the equator the position is and other considerable scientific factors.
