Jakarta, Indonesia to Melbourne is an approximately 10-hour combination of bus and flight. Traveling from Jakarta to Melbourne, you'll lose 3 hours due to the time zone difference. When traveling from Jakarta in December, plan for a bit cooler days in Melbourne, with highs around 30°C, while nights are colder with lows around 14°C.
