Yes, it can survive Melbourne weather and fruit too. I had one in a pot for a number of years but due to draught I did not water much and it could not survive.

I still have one seedling from a fruit I ate still OK after 5 years on the ground but very little (20 cm tall). One thing I found that fruiting started around Jan and by the time winter comes those fruits were still young so production is lost.

May be just me not looking after it very well. I would suggest having a big tree for a start may be ok.

Do you think I would be able to grow a longan tree in Geraldton? we have temperate weather, but with very strong winds at times.

Debbie, You should be fine being about level with Brisbane. I have one that would be 30 years old.. quite a large tree, not a good bearer but a beautiful tree never the less. Wind may be a bit of a problem however and you may need to find a sunny sheltered position for it
