It is that time of the year again – the time when the leaves of some of our deciduous tree blaze with vibrance and our famous Fagus leaves shift from green to rust red through to brilliant yellow hues. The Fagus, also known as the deciduous beech (Nothofagus gunii) is only found in Tasmania, and is best seen in the highland regions throughout our beautiful state. Other trees such as the Lombardy Poplar were imported and planted by the early settlers, and the various species of Ash and Elms line our rivers, creeks and roads and have very distinctive and colourful foliage from March through April each year. Here are a few, but by no means a comprehensive list of places to see some of the amazing autumn colour around Hobart & Beyond.

1. Cascade Gardens

Take a 10 minute drive from the CBD towards the Cascade Brewery and take a stroll through the beautifully manicured gardens that are on either side of Cascade Road.
