Melbourne weather

There's no such thing as a big freeze in Melbourne - the city enjoys cool, damp days at the worst of times, and a long, hot summer finishing off with balmy, breezy evenings in spring and autumn. Winter here is from June to August, summer begins in December - you'll not be greeting Santa by the fireplace but rather around a barbecue on the beach. Despite soaring temperatures in January and February, the seaside location provides a refreshing breeze and the average rainfall is far lower than that of Sydney.
