Summer in Melbourne is typically warm and dry. Temperatures can vary drastically during this season, with afternoon showers cooling down the temperature. In contrast, winter can be quite cold. Melbourne does not experience snow (even in the coldest months), but in the dead of winter, a cold day typically sits around 12-14 degrees celsius.
Backpackers and couples often prefer visiting Melbourne in winter. This is because of the discounted airfares and hotel prices during this tourist off-season. There are ski fields located just a few hours from the city that feature excellent ski slopes, snow-capped peaks and hiking trails. Winter nights can be very cold with chilled wind and morning fogs also very common.
