Today Monday, 5th of October of 2015, the sun rose in Melbourne at 6:50 am and sunset will be at 7:28 pm. The moon rose in the northeast (67º) at 2:01 am and will set in the northwest (293º) at 12:26 pm.
In the high tide and low tide chart, we can see that the first low tide was at 2:35 am and the next low tide will be at 2:55 pm. The first high tide will be at 9:05 am and the next high tide at 8:45 pm.
The lunar phase is a Last Quarter Moon. Today we have 12 hours and 38 minutes of sun. The solar transit is at 1:09 pm and the length of time the moon will be visible will be 10 hours and 25 minutes.
The tidal coefficient today is 41, a low value, which means that the range (difference between high tide and low tide) will be lower than on other occasions and the currents will also be small. At noon the tidal coefficient increases to 42 to end the day with a tidal coefficient of 44. The tide heights today are 0.1 m, 0.8 m, 0.3 m and 0.8 m. We can compare these levels with the maximum high tide recorded in the tide tables for Melbourne which is of 1.0 m and a minimum height of 0.0 m.
The solunar fishing calendar in Melbourne tells us that today is an average day for fishing, the fish activity forecast is average. Please, read more about solunar tables. The best times of day for fishing are:
Tide timetable for Melbourne. The times are generated in local time in Victoria and the daylight saving time change is calculated automatically, so you don't need to add or subtract anything. You will also have the lunar phase, sunrise and sunset times, the tidal coefficient and the average fish activity forecast for each day according to the solunar tables:
[ 0 low activity ] , [ average activity ] , [ high activity ] , [ very high activity ]
NOTE: The times reflected in the tide table for Melbourne are tide forecasts only valid as references for sport fishing. They shouldn't be used as a guide for navigation. The heights are expressed in meters referenced to Mean Lower Low Water (MLLW).
MLLW is the average of the lower low water height of each tidal day observed over the official time segment over which tide observations are taken and reduced to obtain mean value (Tidal Datum Epoch).
