VICTORIA & MELBOURNE HOLIDAYS IN 2016/17

Melbourne is the capital and the most populous city within the state of Victoria and is the second most populated within Australia, after Sydney. Melbourne was previously, and unfairly, considered to be very much within the shadow of its Australian counterpart, Sydney. It has, however, in the proceeding years risen out of the de facto capital’s shadow and become a premier tourist destination.

Packing Tips

Victoria, located in South Australia is known mainly for the city of Melbourne. Melbourne is a place for people who love city-life, being much less-touristy than other popular cities such as Brisbane and Sydney. Culture, coffee and food take pride and place in Melbourne - so be sure to pack a city map and a list of restaurants to tick off during your trip.

Inner-city transport isn’t the best in Melbourne, so you’ll likely do a lot of walking as you sightsee, so a good pair of comfy shoes is a must. It’s also worth packing warmly too, with some layers for when the wind picks up, or the temperature cools down.

If you plan on taking a road-trip along The Great Ocean Road during your time there, definitely take a windproof coat along with you - as the coast can get very breezy, especially in the winter months.

Weather In Victoria & Melbourne

Victoria is known for being a slightly cooler region of Australia, so expect an average high of 24 degrees Celsius in the summer months, and an average low of 6 degrees Celsius in the winter months. Unlike other areas of Australia, Melbourne does experience vastly different seasons, and is a great city to see the seasons change month by month.

Even in the summer months the breeze can still feel cold, so it’s important to always bring a layer of warmth with you. Near the coastal areas, such as The Great Ocean Road, expect the weather to be a few degrees cooler, and the wind to pick up.
