Colourful family time

Autumn has arrived

The brisk cooler weather of autumn has arrived. The warmer days can be deceiving but look outside to see the changing colours of the cities deciduous trees.

 

Waterside parklands

The crisp cool temperatures are perfect for a stroll along the Murray River parklands. After a morning jaunt to the weekend markets, tummies filled with seasonal produce and warm coffee, Noreuil Park makes for the perfect autumn playground for little ones. Nothing screams autumn like children throwing fallen leaves and parents being blanketed in those leaves.

Wodonga’s Sumsion gardens is also worth a pit stop for families. The awesome playground will exhaust the youngsters, and the blanket of rich colours across the gardens is photo worthy.

 

Blaze of glory

A stones throw from Albury’s city centre, the Botanic Garden is a plethora or warm autumn colours. The vibrant yellow of the Gingko tree contrasting against the lush green lawns is amongst the gardens highlights… making the perfect backdrop to any family snap.

 

A pop of colour

Those who venture to Mungabareena Reserve will be rewarded. The golden hues of the tall, elegant Poplar trees lining the road are impressive. These beauties lose their leaves quickly. You’ll need to be quick to see them in their vivacious glory.

Another colour hot spot is Les Stone Park. Winding its way alongside House Creek, the avenue of trees is a must see.

 

Residential roaming

There is something revealing about wandering along a cities residential streets… people going about normal life. With fallen leaves already piling, a few of our favourite autumn streets to ramble along include Wyse, Victoria and Thurgoona Streets.

 

Regional reccy

And if you can’t get enough of the fiery colours locally, a daytrip to Victoria’s High Country is in order. The valleys that lead towards Mt Beauty and Bright are a gallery to those admiring the regions autumn colours. If travel dates coincide, Bright’s Autumn Festival is a ten day celebration of colour and produce.

 

If time isn’t on your side, the warmth of autumn colours can be relished from any of the cities lookouts (Monument Hill, Huon Hill Lookout and Eastern Hill Lookout)!
