Today Tuesday, 23th of September of 2014, the sun rose in Melbourne at 6:08 am and sunset will be at 6:17 pm. The moon rose in the east (85º) at 5:21 am and will set in the west (272º) at 5:24 pm.

The lunar phase is a Waning Crescent. Today we have 12 hours and 9 minutes of sun. The solar transit is at 12:13 pm and the length of time the moon will be visible will be 12 hours and 3 minutes.
The tidal coefficient today is 86, a high value and therefore the range of tides and currents will also be high. At noon the tidal coefficient increases to 88 to end the day with a tidal coefficient of 89. The tide heights today are 0.6 m, 0.2 m, 0.6 m and 0.3 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 excellent day for fishing, the fish activity forecast is very high. Please, read more about solunar tables. The best times of day for fishing are:
| from 5:21 am to 6:21 am, very high activity minor period (moonrise). This period of high activity coincides with sunrise; therefore the sun will exercise more influence, resulting in an excellent time for fishing
from 11:22 am to 1:22 pm, very high activity Major period (moon up)
from 5:24 pm to 6:24 pm, very high activity minor period (moonset). This period of high activity coincides with sunset; therefore the sun will exercise more influence, resulting in an excellent time for fishing
from 11:37 pm to 1:37 am, very high activity Major period (moon down)
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).
