The Best Time to Visit Melbourne

We would definitely recommend visiting Melbourne in the shoulder seasons, so:

  • March to May
  • September to November

These are the months with moderate tourist crowds and mild weather. If you need to fly to Melbourne, the airfares will also be cheaper then.

The summer months of January and February are the high season and are full of visitors wandering the charming streets of Melbourne, plus it can get pretty hot.
