Melbourne in august

by Experience Oz + NZ Staff

Winter in Melbourne winds up in August in an enjoyable fashion with a range of things to see and do including visiting the nearby ski fields.

Much like July, temperatures remain chilly and it's advisable to bring warm clothing for those days where you'll need to rug up. However, with multiple seasons often occurring during the course of a single day, Melbourne's weather is quite unpredictable.

Regardless, this season is one of the best times to visit Melbourne - if you can tolerate colder weather - due to the lack of crowds and absence of any school holidays. In addition, the ski and snow season is still in full swing until the end of August for those looking to participate in winter sports.

Meanwhile in Melbourne city, August makes for a pretty and pleasant atmosphere that, while cold, tends to look very beautiful on overcast or foggy days. This adds to the charm of the city and the displays of greenery that can be found throughout.

here we touch on a few of the best things to see and do in Melbourne during the month of August. Some of the most popular attractions to visit and things to do in and around Melbourne in August include:

Take the Great Ocean Road from Melbourne to Adelaide

For a scenic experience that will let you stay in the comfort of your heated car or tour bus, the drive from Melbourne to Adelaide along the route that includes the Great Ocean Road is a must-do in the winter months.

Before embarking on the trip, bear in mind that it is likely to take a good 3 days in order to make the most of the many sights and landmarks that the route has to offer along the way rather than just solid driving.

Melbourne in August Great Ocean Road

Expect to encounter numerous highlights throughout the course of the trip including not only the incredibly scenic and rugged coastline but natural and geological formations such as the Twelve Apostles, the Grampians National Park (a great stop for hiking!) and the chance to encounter the rare White Western Grey Kangaroo at Bordertown.

If you're not looking to commit that much time in a one-way journey then visiting the Great Ocean Road is definitely possible in a single day. There are numerous day tours available that will take you along the road and back to Melbourne CBD, or you can hire a car and do it all on your own.

An outdoor museum of sorts, Sovereign Hill aims to recreate the settings and atmosphere of the 1850's Gold Rush era, and is entertaining, educational and informative, making it a great destination to take the kids.

There are more than enough attractions to fill the whole day, including gold panning, taste testing at bakeries, sweet shops and tea rooms, and watching blacksmiths work. Sovereign Hill provides a substantial amount of entertainment that makes for a refreshing change from all the run-of-the-mill attractions that can be found elsewhere.

There are also a number of scheduled demonstrations and displays at regular intervals, a timetable for these events is handed out with your map on entry.

Enjoy the last month of the ski season at Mt Buller

As August winds up, the conditions of the ski fields at Mt Buller are still typically reliable for both beginners and the advanced alike. As the closest ski resort to Melbourne, Mt Buller is reached in around a 3-hour drive from the city centre, making day trips possible, however, longer trips are advised if you want to get the most out of the conditions on offer.

In addition to natural snowfall, snowmaking equipment is installed at the resort which helps ensure there is an abundance of reliable, skiable snow until later on in the ski season.

Melbourne in August Mount Buller Skiing

With comprehensive ski hire services, a regular ski patrol, ski school and some of the best terrain in Australia for skiers and snowboarders, Mt Buller ranks as a world-class ski resort. While it can get crowded in peak season, the resort aims to deal with this by having 25 lifts with the ability to move around 40,000 skiers per hour to help keep lines moving.

Plenty of accommodation is also available at the facility of varying kinds that aim to cater to different budgets.
