I live In Brisbane Australia I have a rock melon plant can I plant it now & How far do the vines go as I only have a small courtyard

Yes try growing it - I have some which are just starting to spread now. In really good soil and plenty of water they could spread a diameter of 4m. You could move/train the vine to a smaller area.
