Being situated between 37.4
o and 38.9o South latitude, the region experiences a Temperate climate with dominant westerly winds, variable cloud, moderate precipitation and cool temperatures.

Sixteen monthly and annual climate surfaces for the Corangamite region have been modelled by Peter Dahlhaus, using ANUCLIM, a climatic model developed by the Centre for Resource and Environmental Studies at the Australian National University. Of these, rainfall and evaporation are shown on this site.
