Melbourne Weather In July
Melbourne's Winter Wonderland!

You are here: Home | Melbourne Weather | Melbourne Weather In July

July is the second wettest month of the year with an average rainfall of 47.9mm and approximately half of the days of the month wet, windy and cold.

The sun sneaks out on average for a full 3.5hrs during the day doing its best to dry up some of the wet.

The weather in the month of July is cold, very cold... brrr makes me shiver just thinking about it!

The Average Temperatures for the weather in July are:

High 13.4°Celsius(56.12°F) – Low 5.9°Celsius(42.62°F)

There is a smokey haze over the city, the open fires are burning busily and the smells of sizzling sausages lingers in the air as families take to the hills on a weekend to enjoy the brisk mountain air.

A favorite pastime during winter's Melbourne weather in July is a daytrip up into the Dandenongs to feed the beautiful Australian native birds.

King Parrot - Australian Native Bird Series Poster

The King Parrot is an Australian Native bird found in humid and heavily forested upland regions of the eastern portion of the continent, including eucalyptus wooded areas in and directly adjacent to subtropical and temperate rainforest.

This poster forms part of the Australian Native Bird Series that I am putting together.

Why not gather the series as they would make for beautiful gifts or framed as part of your home or office decor.

The Melbourne Ski Season is in full swing with the alps covered with snow.

The Melbourne weather in July is perfect for excellent snow falls in the high mountain ranges and they are all well within a few hours drive from central Melbourne.

If you are into snow skiing etc then head on up to Mt Buller or Mt Buffalow only several hours from Melbourne central.

If you just want a fun day trip up to the snow to give the children a taste of the fluffy, white stuff then a drive to Mount Baw Baw is an easy trip for you all.

The weather can be quite dramatic at times with blustery cold winds, heavy driven rain with thunder and lightening.

Make sure you rug up well and invest in a strong umbrella.

Don't Let The Melbourne Weather In July
Stop You From Enjoying Yourselves!


Melbourne city itself has plenty to show with the Parks and Gardends bursting forth with Winter blooms.

The Royal Botanical Gardens are beautiful on a clear day with the weather not hot and the crowds not too large.

An excellent time to visit the zoo is in July for exactly the same reason.

The Melbourne weather in July, although cold, can be delightful to enjoy outside with the right weather conditions.

The Docklands puts on a display of Fireworks during the month of July to liven up the winter blues.

Watch this spectacular fireworks show every Friday night in July.

Five uniquely themed fireworks displays complimented by music themes (rock, pop, jazz, soul and classical) launch from Victoria Harbour.

Quite a celebration down at the Docklands in Winter so don't miss out.


And of course all along the coastline the Melbourne weather in July produces the most dramatic conditions for sightseeing.

Cape Otway Lighthouse -Victoria- Australia

The Great Ocean Road is perfect for sight seeing with the wintry southern winds belting the dramatic coastline.

For example the Cape Otway Lightstation is the oldest, surving lighthouse on mainland Australia.

Long stretches of deserted ocean beaches offer spectacular areas to wander for hours on end, even fossiking at the base of the cliffs for semi precious stones, sea glass and aboriginal artefacts.
