Go for the World Cup of Golf next month, stay for one of the world’s greatest cities… plus four great course options...
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.
