Summers are warm and dry. Occasionally there are very hot days. Our advice is to seek protection from the sun and be aware of the possibility of bush-fires in some areas of regional Victoria.
Melbourne’s weather is generally temperate and mild. You will need a range of clothing to cater for the distinct seasons. In winter you will need thick woolen jumpers or coats. Clothing such as scarves, beanies and gloves aren’t necessarily required. In summer, light clothes are desirable but you will need a hat.
As the weather can be unpredictable from time to time, it is recommended that layers of clothing be worn, especially in the colder months. Students in Australia generally dress casually, unless there is a special event. Students are advised to bring basic clothing as a large range of affordable clothing can be readily purchased here in Melbourne in places such as Smith Street in Fitzroy, Bridge Road, Richmond or the many direct factory outlets (DFO).
