If I'm going to have blueberries in a glasshouse in Melbourne, should I choose a tropical or subtropical variety?

Why are you putting them in a glasshouse? Blueberries don't need hot conditions - quite the opposite.

I understand why you are planning to cozy your blues in a glasshouse in Melbourne. You don't want to share it with the birds and insects. But by doing so you will be killing them softly like leaving a child in a locked car in the open. They will get fried sooner or later. Better to plant them in the open so they can accumulate the needed chilling hours. Just cover them with netting during fruiting season if you don't want to share them with the birds and insects and maybe even the occasional homo sapiens. Your glasshouse will be of better use for really tropical plants like carica papaya, star fruit, star apple, mangosteen, sapodilla, lychee etc. In the end the decision to plant anything in your glasshouse still rest upon you.
Happy Gardening :-)

Thanks for your great answer. Yes it was the birds, I'll make new plans and plant them outside and net them.
