Melbourne Travel Guide

 

Melbourne

Welcome to Melbourne! Melbourne is the capital city of Victoria Australia. And, it's known for having four seasons in one day.

Melbourne is my home town. I find myself carrying too much to cater to all types of weather so that I am prepared and not be caught out.

Summer is from December to February. Autumn is March to May, Winter is June to August, and Spring is September to November.

In summer we can get a hot and strong north wind. Our winters are mild compared to the northern hemisphere. And, our autumn and spring vary from warm to cold and vice versa as the seasons change.
