Due to unforeseen circumstances, I am rescheduling my flight to Melbourne and only have two options.
Either I can come in mid September or early November. As a solo traveller for the first time, I'm looking to maximise the time and budget I have there, so, my question is: Which is a better month to come (Sept or Nov), in terms of :
more sunny days than rainy days? Not too hot not too cold? best possible weather?
Hostels in early Nov seem to hike up tremendously due to Melbourne Cup compared to the prices in September. But if things are usually more exciting in Nov than in Sept, I may choose Nov as well.. but would need your opinion on this.
Which month usually have more events and livelier? More backpackers/travellers, perhaps?
Your feedback is very much appreciated :)
