Most of the deciduous trees that line the suburban streets have lost their leaves and are resting up till Spring.

However walking in the parks and gardens on a clear day can be a delight as the rays of sun stream in through the bare branches creating a beautiful and peaceful visual pictures.

The Official Queen's Birthday is celebrated on the second Monday in June and this long weekend is the perfect opportunity to attend a Fair Dinkum(real) Aussie Rules Footie match!

The 2 major rival teams that have traditionally played on this Monday are Collingwood and Melbourne.

The game is played at the MCG and if you do get the opportunity to see the match it is well worth it, even though the Melbourne weather in June can mean that it can get quite cold, in fact quite freezing!

The Melbourne Weather In June - Perfect Time For A Family Picnic

Whatever you do make sure that you have some warm clothes to wear as the Melbourne weather in June temperatures can drop very low very suddenly.

The Dandenong Mountains are lots of fun in the winter months with all the parks and gardens open to the public to enjoy a picnic family BBQ.

There is nothing like the combination of the smell of sizzling sausages and the fresh mountain air.

Drop some eucalyptus leaves onto the hotplate and smell the Australian bush...nothing like it!

Walhalla is situated deep in the Baw Baw ranges east of Melbourne, Victoria. A fantastic destination for tourists and locals alike offering a trip back in time to days when settlers' modern huts and home made brews were the talk of the town.

This photo was taken in 2014 and using the photo editor 'Fotosketcher' I have produced an oil painting effect. This poster is part of the series on 'Landscapes and Nature'.

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.

June also marks the opening of the Ski Season and if you are lucky sometimes it can get so cold here in Melbourne that we actually get to see snow in the mountain ranges that surround the city.

Something the suburban children love to experience.

However 2012 sees the level at well over 70% capacity.

If you are interested you can keep a check on the water storage levels here.

And of course Melbourne beaches are great places to wander on a clear day during the month of June. The Melbourne weather in June still provides some clear, blue skies to enjoy a great day out.

The children love the beach in any climate.

So much to see and do along this amazing stretch of coastline.
