Do you know how hard it is to choose just one picture to capture how amazing Wanaka looks in the autumn?! They all look so good! If you are seeking autumn colours for your travels in New Zealand, then Wanaka is an extremely good choice. Autumn is also a good time to do some mountain biking in Wanaka, as well as preparing for the ski season if you are a working holidaymaker looking for a ski season job.
2. Hawke’s Bay
The colours from the treelined roads, through the crispvineyards, and to the coast are pretty darn beautiful. Autumn is a great time to try out the many vineyards and cellar doors of the Hawke’s Bay region during the wine-making season.
3. Mackenzie District (Canterbury)
The Mackenzie district in Canterbury is lively year-round but more particularly in autumn. Heaps of birds are out feasting on the autumn seed heads. The contrasts of seasons with the snowy mountains behind orange fields aren’t bad either.
Near Gisborne is autumn’s hidden gem. Eastwoodhill is an arboretum (tree park) with the largest selection of Northern Hemisphere trees in the Southern Hemisphere, so as you can imagine, this is the best place for rolling in the golden leaves.
