Where to stay

The heart of the city strad­dles the Yarra River, with ac­com­mo­da­tion op­tions for ev­ery bud­get and taste clus­tered on both sides. Book in St Kilda, Fitzroy, Carl­ton, South Yarra or the CBD (Cen­tral Busi­ness Dis­trict) and you’ll be well placed for most at­trac­tions.

When to visit

The best months to visit Mel­bourne are be­tween March and May and Septem­ber and No­vem­ber, the lat­ter co­in­cid­ing with this year’s World Cup of Golf. Those shoul­der sea­sons of­fer pleas­ant tem­per­a­tures, lighter crowds and lower prices. De­cem­ber to Fe­bru­ary is Mel­bourne’s sum­mer, so are hot­ter and more crowded. June to Au­gust is its win­ter, so colder and less suited to golf and tourism.
