Melbourne Travel Essentials

Ranked the world’s most liveable city, Melbourne is bound to win the heart of any traveller. Renowned for its vibrant art and food culture, fall in love with this city as you watch a sunset on St Kilda Beach, sip a cocktail on one of the many rooftop bars or treat yourself to a delicious dessert.

Best Time to Visit:

Melbourne’s weather is a lot more sporadic in comparison to the rest of Australia, where sometimes four seasons can be experienced in a day. The summer months between December and March are the best times to visit. Many events happen during this time, and it is hot and sunny most days. Spring is also very pleasant as it is generally cooler with a lot of sun. June and August are Melbourne’s winter months, and days are usually cloudy, with very cold nights.
