Where To Watch The Supermoon In Melbourne (If The Clouds Don’t Ruin It)

If a regular full moon makes the world go a bit cray cray, then buckle up people, because shit is about to get real, with the supermoon in full force tonight in Melbourne. We’ve got our phones at the ready, and we’re all more than prepared to take terrible photos of the moon that we’ll never look at again. But because we know you’ll want to check it out (we’ll be there too), these are the best places in Melbourne to go, provided the clouds don’t rain on our parade, that is. 

In case you don’t know what we’re talking about, the moon is going to be a cool 20% bigger than it’s usual self tonight. It’s going to be the biggest and brightest that it’s been in about 70 years and isn’t expected to happen again until 2034. So yeah, it’s kind of a big deal.

Our hot tip for places to check out this enormous moon would be any beach area facing the east. Williamstown, Altona, Geelong and Torquay should be ideal positions if the clouds stay away.

If you really like the idea of enjoying the supermoon, but are lazy AF and can’t actually be bothered leaving the house to see the moon, only to have it all ruined by those annoying clouds anyway, then search for #supermoon to follow it on Insta.

Just for a little refresher, here are our tips on upping your Insta game, because if you don’t put this one on the ‘gram, then you’ll be feeling more than a little bit left out come Tuesday morning.
