I have no clue how to find that information. Just guessing, I'd say the highest was right at 100F, and the lowest probably 9-10F.

Melbourne's highest yearly temperature is impressively hot for a city with not very hot summers. Is it because there are desert climates in the area?

Wunderground

Here I believe it was 3 F in early January and 100 F during the heatwave in early July.

Semi-Arid climates can be found about 300km to the north and true desert begins about 500km to the northwest. With subtropical deserts being so close, it's not too hard to get temps well into the 100's. The problem is the constant onslaught of cold fronts and seabreezes means there is no persistant heat, and it is usually impossible to achieve a long enough period of northerly flow to really get temps up

Highest temp on record anywhere in Melbourne is 48C / 117F on Feb 7 2009 at Avalon AIrport.
