Hit reset, kick up the leaves and immerse yourself in nature this autumn. We know the perfect spots you can slip away to for a quick weekend road trip no matter where you are. Here are some of the best places across the country to watch the leaves change.
Bright is known for its picturesque scenery and cosy atmosphere, mainly through autumn. The Bright Autumn Festival takes place over ten days, celebrating the autumn colours, the town’s people, and all their offerings. Find something for every family member with art galleries, markets, craft workshops, chestnut picking, bike tours, walking tours, and so much more.
Step back in time with a weekend trip to Richmond, a short drive northeast of Hobart. Rich with history, here you can walk on Australia’s oldest large stone arch bridge, visit the Richmond gaol, or one of the many museums. If that isn’t your speed, then select one of the vineyards, restaurants, farms, or produce shops to get a real taste of the local produce and wine on offer.
