Yarra Valley Today & 7 Day Weather Forecast, Victoria

The Yarra Valley weather forecast is typically a little cooler than the Melbourne temperatures throughout the year as the Yarra Valley is more mountainous and has higher elevations.


The average high temperature in the Summer months is about 25C, therefore summer in the Yarra Valley is pleasant and warm, with only a few very hot days. During Winter, the region experiences strong cold winds and frost and there is abundant rainfall with average temperatures sitting at an average of 13C.

Autumn is a good time to visit the Yarra Valley with average temperatures sitting at about 20C, and the beautiful vines are at their best. However Autumn can be windy with intermittent days of rain. Most harvesting is during this period, so if you are interested in wine production, this is the best time to go.

Spring is certainly the best time to visit the Yarra Valley as the temperature sits at an average 20C, with sunny days and cool nights. During Spring, the Yarra Valley comes to life and it is during this time that you will be able to sit outside and enjoy a glass of wine as you take in the stunning panorama of Yarra Valley region.

    • Hi Georgina, thanks for reaching out.

      I have checked the Bureau of Meteorology for the weather forecast and they note the following:
      Sunday 2 October
      Summary: Min 10 Max 22 Sunny day. Late rain.
      Possible rainfall: 5 to 15 mm Chance of any rain: 80%
      Mostly sunny day. High (80%) chance of rain in the evening. Winds northerly 30 to 45 km/h.

      Monday 3 October
      Summary: Min 10 Max 16 Showers easing.
      Possible rainfall: 5 to 15 mm Chance of any rain: 90%
      Partly cloudy. High (80%) chance of showers. Winds northerly 30 to 40 km/h turning west to northwesterly 25 to 40 km/h during the morning.

      I would go with Sunday, the showers (and probably wind) will come later in the day, well after your balloon trip will be over. For your convenience, I have attached the link to the balloon tickets here.

      I hope you have a great time in the Yarra Valley – what a great way to spend the weekend!


    • Hi Tania,

      The good thing about the Yarra Valley is that it changes and adapts to the seasons. Whereas in Spring and Summer you might find tables and chairs taken outdoors to enjoy the sunshine; in Winter, many wineries stoke the fire to make their wineries a wonderful respite from the cold.

      I can recommend a couple of lovely wineries with fireplaces:
      1. Acacia Ridge – a historic miner’s cottage with a beautiful brick fireplace.
      2. Punt Road – who serve mulled apple cider with hints of cloves and cinnamon.
      3. Helen’s Hill – Large open fireplace where you can sit and enjoy a glass.
      4. Yarra Yering – Enjoy some of the Yarra Valley’s finest wines in front of an open fireplace.
      5. Medhurst – They have a welcoming warming wood burning stove to welcome you in from the cold.

      Enjoy your (winter) trip to the Yarra Valley!
