Best Time/Month to visit Melbourne 2009?

by erinatg

Hai, hope someone can help me with this ASAP...I'm going to surprise my mum with this all expenses paid trip to Melbourne for her 51st birthday. So only her and my aunt will be going to Melbourne (too bad I have to work! :< )
This will be their first time in Melbourne and I want to know what is the best time/month/date to visit? They will be there for 10 days. Thank you.

I agree, late March - April or late September October are the best times.

May could be OK - or could be very cold. November could also be OK.

Check out weatherunderground (go to history and almanac) for the weather history of previous years and maybe this will help with your choice of times.

We did melbourne last year 22-29th october and had wonderful weather. Do note that October and March are classified as Victoria's busiest times and plan accordingly.
Cheers Heather

Have to agree with September/October. Melbourne's gardens are beautiful and that's when they're really at their best, plus the weather won't be too hot.

Hi Melbourne weather varies within the day and to the next day, known as having 4 seasons in one day so bring layer clothing. If you do not like extreme heat March to end of May should be OK but a little wet(drissle). End of Sept to Christmas good, melbourne Cup horse race first Tuesday in November, hotels very busy the week either side.

Good Luck,
Mike

I would do end of Sept through to November, weather is picking up but keep in mind it still can be cool not beach weather. From 9-25 October the Melbourne Festival is on which, has many things to see and do, check out http://www.melbournefestival.com.au.

If you were looking for a beachy holiday, you wouldn't choose Melbourne, so I would still opt for mid-Spring as the nicest time to be here. Gardens looking lovely as I said, not too hot to sightsee and shop. Avoid Melbourne Cup week unless you're a diehard raing fan - decent hotels are all booked out.

Best weather in Melbourne is in autumn (fall)so March/April as the winds are less but it might be too late for that. next is sept/oct particularly the last week in Sept for some reason is a little warmer.

Travel Tips for Melbourne

When ever we have friends...

by ALVICKI

When ever we have friends visiting Melbourne for the first time we always take them to Southbank to experience the pulse of Melbourne. The shops and eating areas are fantastic with a wide range of available cuisines. You look across the Yarra River to the city skyline and the atmosphere is friendly. The people stroll the wide river promenade, buskers perform and you can pick up a bargain at the market stalls. There is always something to see. It is situated close the Art Gallery, theatres and Crown Entertainment Complex . A great location to cater for a range of interests.

MUST SEE ACTIVITIES
Activity: Make sure to stop at the Healesville Wildlife Sanctuary. It has to be one of the finest and most unique zoos in the world. It's as if you were in the wild but had to stay on a fenced in path with the wildlife all around you.
Unique Qualities: Great photo ops and a great chance to see native fauna (platypus,wombat,kangaroo, koala etc)
Location: Northeast of Melbourne Approximately 1.5 hours
Classification: Zoos , Photography , Site Seeing

Something for the kids

by iandsmith

If you're well-heeled or just have a bit of extra cash and, you have children or grandchildren, then have I got a place for you. This is a salute to the tacky. In the casino complex is a Warner Bros. shop and you don't need to be a genius to work out what they're trying to flog here.
From the small to the large, depending on your budget, all you favourite cartoon and other characters are for sale here.
Just bring money, you have been warned.

Australians will normally...

by on_business

Australians will normally split (share) the restaurant bill.

We will ask people on meeting them 'how are you' we don't expect an answer as it is just a greeting. Like G'day.

We call people 'mate' usually other men but sometimes woman, please note this is the same as 'buddy' as used by Americans. It is not a term used in a sexual way, as in 'my mate'!

Melbourne Cricket Ground

by phillarkins

If you come to melbourne in winter go to a game of australian rules football at the MCG. You won't need to know the rules, just ask the person standing next to you what is going on and they will be happy to inform you, probably in a colorful way. Everyone knows the MCG. Make sure in winter you bring plenty of warm clothes and bring in some food. Inside it is really expensive.

The Immigration Museum

by xuessium

Come and discover the immigration history of Australia right down to settlement by the Europeans.

Located in the stately Old Customs House, the museum re-creates the real-life stories of coming to Australia with a rich mix of moving images, personal and community voices, memories and memorabilia.

As Australia grasps with its identity, walk steps backwards towards how Australia becomes what it is today: British settlements, Gold-rush triggered population explosions, "The White Australia Policy", The waves of Romanised and Grecianised immigration and finally, the arrival of the Asians.

There is a gallery, created to replicate the bunks in the ships that carried immigrants to their new homes, and relive their dread, sadness, misery and hope.

Read about personal experiences. I almost cracked into laughter reading about the story of an Italian wife, worried that there would be no condoms in Australia and had a suitcase of them. Read about racist treachery as you try "The Diction Test", used to deter no English speakers from entering "White Australia" of the 40s and 50s. Read about aboriginal sadness at the loss of their land. I remember the passage (in gist) that goes ..."As Australia celebrates its bi-centennial, the Aboriginal groups mourned".....
