Tasmania as a whole could make this list. The state is irresistible in autumn: a spectacular assortment of colourful trees, berries, and vineyards dominates the landscape. Combine this with clear days and a lingering glow at twilight.
Leading destinations to view enchanting colours include the historical village of Ross, between Hobart and Launceston; and towns within the Derwent Valley area, easily accessible from the Tasmanian capital.
Iconic Cradle Mountain-Lake St Clair National Park bursts with colour thanks to a natural spectacle known as ‘The Turning of the Fagus’. The fagus is a cold-climate deciduous beech tree endemic to Tasmania, and from late April through May it puts on a stunning show: the wide variety of shades creates a visual feast. Another prime place to witness the fabulous fagus is Mount Field National Park, accessible from Hobart.
