You will always have a couple of very hot days up to 40°C during the summer. These hot days don’t go on more than 2 consecutive days. Personally, I like to go to the beach at the end of one hot day because the water is perfect for a swim and I can enjoy a nice sunset with a drink.

Melbourne winter is mild but with the wind you can feel quite cold sometimes. Moreover some accommodations do not have a good heating system and it can be very chilly inside the house. I love to wear UGG boots for winter days. They are so comfortable and warm. I am sure if you try, you will also adopt them.

Coldest ever: -2.8°C in July (1869).

Protect you and your family from the sun

As I said before, do not forget your sun protection when the UV Index is forecast to reach 3 or above.

Australia has one of the highest rates of skin cancer in the world. Two in three Australians will be diagnosed with skin cancer by the age of 70.This is pretty scaring, isn't it?

Here are some advices to protect you from the sun:

  • Wearing hats, protective clothing and sunglasses, using sunscreen.
  • Check the UV Alert
  • Time outings for early in the morning or later in the afternoon during the summer
  • Take shade to the beach. People do not use beach umbrella in Australia.
