Because it is in the Southern Hemisphere, the coldest months are July and August, and the warmest months are January and February. The average temperature in the winter is 13 degrees fahrenheit, but in the evening the temperature can be reduced to about -2 degrees. In the summer months, especially in February, the average temperature is 26 degrees.

For fine dining, you can go to restaurants on Carlton Street, as well as near Yarra River and Docklands, which are also some of the places that must be visited in Melbourne. If you have the time and opportunity, join a boat tour on the river. The Australian Grand Prix, held in March, is also an ideal event for those who like these types of water sports. Rialto Tower, the Art Center containing victorian period art, St. Paul’s Cathedral are places you can visit again and again in Melbourne.
