When is the best time to visit Melbourne?
Posted on Dec 14, 2010
I think the best time to visit Melbourne is March - its not too hot, but you still have nice weather and there is so much on in March. There is the Grand Prix, the Food and Wine Festival, and Spring Fashion Week as well as a number of other smaller celebrations. Additionally there are no school holidays in March so it not as crowded as some other months.

I was there a few years ago in early November. That is springtime downunder. The weather was very comfortable and mostly sunny.
It's one of my favorite places I have ever visited. Any time is probably a fine time to be there. :-) Depends on what you are looking for. Go during the northern summer and you will be around during the middle of Aussie Rules season which could be fun if you are into that.

If the question is in reference to weather, Melbourne has winters that approximate Seattle/Portland, and summers that approximate San Diego (70s to mid 80s, with occasional hot spikes). And just like in those cities, it's hit or miss as to whether it's going to good or lousy weather.

Depends what you want to be there for. The Melbourne Cup is the first week of November, and it's a fabulous affair of horses, hats, and booze. If you want to catch some Footie, you've got to get there a bit earlier, as the season is over by late October. Summertime in general is fabulous--the city is full of rooftop parties and endless afternoons.

Weather is variable in summer, but spring usually produces some pretty spectacular days. Best time to come really depends what you're into - food, galleries, racing, footy, comedy, music etc. Melbourne is a great place any time of year! It doesnt have the show-stopping views or beaches of other Australian cities, but it's the cultural capital with loads to explore regardless of the weather!
