Doesn't sound too out of the norm to me. Everyone in OZ knows that you can experience all four seasons in one day with melbourne weather. Just have to take the melbourne cup as an example.

And up north it is getting towards the tropics so that explains the heavy rain up there.

You should have just come over to Perth, we have much more stable weather over here! But as im saying that it has been rather overcast today!


Enjoy your time here!

Hey Babe,

You're here now? Kind of bad luck :( The weather has really been pretty bad for the last little while. Melbourne is very unpredictable at the best of times, but this is a particularly cold and wet November. Considering the drought from the last few years there are a lot of people who are pretty happy about this latest bout of rain!! Still, no fun if you want to hang out by the beach ;)

How are you enjoying Melbourne otherwise?

Cheers, Peter

Yeah, I'm in Sydney and it was raining all day yesterday and overcast today. I've been here for nearly three weeks and have only been to the beach once!! People keep telling me it's going to clear up soon......and everyone over here is happy with the rain cos it's filling up the reservoir! It's just like good old Ireland, except with hotter men and cooler pubs....

I'm in Surfers Paradise and it is now 28c,so ok weather,
It is hot though in the hostel rooms when you are trying to sleep,as not all have got air conditoning,some only have fans if you are lucky.
