Despite the small size of Victoria, the state has a variable climate. The climate ranges from being hot and semi-arid in the north west to being cool and temperate along the coast.

The centre of the state experiences a cooler, mountain climate as a result of the Great Dividing Range.

Hot winds from nearby deserts cause temperatures in the north to go to 30 °C during summer and 15 °C in winter. The area around the Victorian Alps is the coolest with winter temperatures often being less than 9 °C. However, the cooler climate in the mountains make the area ideal for skiing during the winter time.

Late winter and spring are the period of highest rainfall for the region, which usually experiences drier conditions in the summer and autumn.
