How will the weather be in Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane in July/August?

Question by Jiten: How will the weather be in Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane in July/August?
Me and my family are planning to travel to Australia during July/August this year. Whilst I know that its too early to ask any question, however, I would like to know what kind of weather we should be expecting during these months in Sydney and Melbourne. I heard from someone in Dubai that we have to be prepared for an extreme cold and wet weather there. I really do not want to travel especially in wet conditions, as we cannot do much when its raining.

Also, I would like to know what places we should visit in Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane, as we will have 4 days for each place. I would also like to know the cheaper options to stay in an apartment of hotel for 4 days in Sydney and Brisbane.

Thank you all in advance for any help that you could give me. I would be grateful to receive your responses.

In July/August in Sydney and Melbourne it is fairly cool though mostly it isn’t all that wet. (I definately wouldn’t call these extremely wet or cold weather conditions though… :S) Though I think that time of year could be a little drizzly in Melbourne. The wet season in Australia is in summer (Dec-Feb). Depending on where you are coming from you may not think Sydney and Melbourne to be very cold at all. Mostly it’ll be mid to low teens (in degrees C).

I am not fully sure on the exact temperatures because I live in Brisbane which is usually quite a bit warmer and sunnier than both Sydney and Melbourne.

I’m afraid I can’t help you with accomodation options, I’d have to do the research myself. I suggest you have a look at some websites of places you find on google :)

Places to visit… The obvious ones are the Sydney Opera House and Sydney Harbour Bridge (very nice, can’t miss them). In Brisbane I suggest perhaps visiting a zoo (can’t go to Australia without cuddling a koala and hugging a kangaroo) and going into the city and having a look around South Bank (I like South Bank it is really pretty). The Botanical Gardens are also very nice.

I hope you have a great holiday. I personally love Australia though I may be a tad biased :P
