Melbourne Weather In July
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 Buffalo only several hours from Melbourne central.

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