Best time to go to Melbourne

Peak Season:

Melbourne is a quiet city from December to February, as many of the locals go on annual leave during these months. Because of this, flights and accommodation are inexpensive, giving visitors free rein to soak up the sun in St Kilda, visit the Royal Botanic Gardens, and browse the Queen Victoria Market in the company of other tourists.

Shoulder Season:

March through May, and September through November make up the shoulder season in this city. Despite the temperate weather during these periods, tourists are few, making inexpensive flights to Melbourne readily accessible. Because of the mild climate, this is a great time to immerse yourself in the history and natural beauty of the Great Ocean Road, mingle with the locals at Federation Square, or take in some music at one of the bars in Fitzroy.

Off Season:

From June to August the weather cools down, and tourists flee the city, so if you prefer solitude, this is the best time to go, as crowds are thinner, and the city sees an influx of events, such as the Writers Festival and the International Animation Festival.
