Melbourne has a well-deserved reputation for its changing weather. A typical Melbourne weather forecast will include four seasons in one day.
As a general rule, Melbourne enjoys a temperate climate with warm to hot summers, mild and sometimes balmy spring and autumns, and cool winters.
Melbourne is located in the southern hemisphere and experiences opposite seasons to those in Europe, North America, and most of Asia.
While Melbourne has a reputation for the most rain in Australia, the city receives less rainfall than either Brisbane or Sydney.
Melbourne is an excellent place to see the seasons change. In summer, most people head out to visit our golden beaches. In autumn it is possible to experience the glorious foliage of the many nineteenth century European-style parks that fringe the CBD. In winter, Melburnians enjoy the warmth of cosy cafes and bars. Spring is a time for renewal - a great time to head back into the parks and marvel at the glorious range of flora and fauna.
