Melbourne Weather In August
It's Raining - It's Pouring and Ever So Cold!

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

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.

Even the mountains close to the city can experience a soft snowfall during this month. During a snap cold period local Melbournians can sometimes wake up to a blanket of snow covering their local park ranges.

The deciduous trees have lost their leaves and the branches are full of nuts and berries however the gums are beginning to flower and the colours are magnificent!

During the cold Melbourne weather in August enjoy the best of the Australian snow season at Victoria's picturesque Lake Mountain. The closest snow resort to Melbourne, you can enjoy the snow, explore waterfalls and visit a Chocolaterie all in the same day. Wildlife Tours Australia's Lake Mountain one-day tour will take you on a full day adventure to see some of the best sights in Victoria. The day will begin with a three-hour stay atop Lake Mountain.

You can line up for a toboggan race, build the perfect snowman or walk to the mountain summit for amazing views of the surrounding area. Even though three hours may seem a short time, it is more than enough to fully experience and enjoy the fresh powder that falls on Lake Mountain. Following your trip to the snow, you'll travel to Marysville to explore its giant, cascading waterfalls.

Home to Steavenson Falls, one of the tallest waterfalls in all of Victoria, you'll be in awe as the rushing water moves down 5 cascades and falls a total of 122 metres. While in the Marysville area you'll be given the chance to embark on a nature walk along the river for beautiful views of the region and of the large waterfall.

As the day begins to conclude, you'll move towards your final and most delicious stop on the agenda. Passing through the aromatic Yarra Valley, you'll make a stop at the famous Yarra Valley Chocolaterie and Ice-creamery for some delicious free samples. While you taste the local creations, you'll be able to watch the chocolatiers at work, mixing and creating the chocolate that you are sampling, which will make it taste all the more better.
