Here are some great free things to do in Melbourne outdoors.
Why not check the weather forecast first so you can decide whether it's a good idea to be looking at these outdoor things to do!........
.......If rain is forecast, check out the
Rainy Day Things section.
Even better idea, take notes of both Sunny Day Things and Rainy Day Things.......
......then you'll be prepared whatever the weather as my experience is that the forecasters are usually wrong!
