What to wear

Packing Tips

+Pack layers– Melbourne’s trademark is its ability to host all four seasons in one day! Be prepared for a wide variety of temperatures, humidity, and precipitation. When we were there during late August it mostly rained and had fairly cold temperatures. On the last day, however, there was a heat wave with sun shining for hours! You will also notice that when it is freezing outdoors in Melbourne its toasty warm inside! Having a really good quality jacket is essential!

+A love a good scarf– this item is so versatile I have even added it to my must-pack items. Great in Melbourne for the cooler months but also good for a headscarf in summer!

+Don’t forget sunscreen–  Just because there are clouds doesn’t mean the UV rays won’t get you! Always apply sunscreen! Like I said above sun can come out at any time in Melbourne its good to be prepared!

+A good pair of walking boots or sneakers– You will most likely be discovery the city of Melbourne by foot. A good pair of comfortable walking shoes is essential. I packed a nicer pair of boots as well as super comfy sneakers.

+Neutrals & Blacks– I always pack about 4-5 basic items. A good pair of jeans, shorts, denim jacket and light breathable linen or cotton pieces.
