Melbourne has a mild temperate climate, which means Winter is generally not severe, without extreme cold, snow or hail. In Autumn we can have some lovely sunny, warm days and rain can fall any time of the year, but we may also have droughts every now and then.
The vegetation is mainly native, although there are many introduced species in gardens and parks. Native trees are generally evergreen, with Eucalyptus and related species predominating. This is a typical Autumn scene, with the evergreen eucalypts dominating the landscape. As soon as the first Autumn rains fall, the grass grows and the landscape looks quite lush.
