The Weather in August is fairly similar to that of July in as much as the days are still short, the rain is still falling and the temperatures are freezing!

The Average Temperatures for the Melbourne Climate in August are:

High: 14.9ºCelsius(58.820ºF) - Low: 6.6ºCelsius(43.880ºF)


Most Melbournians have gone indoors to sit by warm fires however there are quite a few brave souls who venture out to either play their favorite sport or if not play it then at least watch it.

Throughout the Melbourne weather in August the Australian Rules Football season is in full swing, with the top teams fighting to get into the finals held in September.

The Ski Season Loves The Melbourne Weather In August

The Ski Mountain ranges are now full with snow and the ski season is in full swing.
