5 Places to Visit in Autumn in New Zealand

Where to visit in Autumn.

There’s something quite addictive about looking at pictures of New Zealand in the autumn (March, April and May). Some areas in particular are like walking through a fantasy land, with the rich orange and brown colours coating the land.

With the sunshine hours still clinging on from summer, the temperature starts to cool off just a bit, yet it’s still comfortable to tackle some of those hikes and enjoy the New Zealand outdoors. Better yet, the crowds go down from the influx of tourists New Zealand experiences in summer, so in some places you can really enjoy that feeling of serenity.

Although New Zealand is beautiful all year round, walking in the forest or getting a vineyard view is something extra special during autumn.

Autumn is a good time to be in Middle-earth.

2. Hawke’s Bay

The colours from the treelined roads, through the crisp vineyards, and to the coast are pretty darn beautiful.

3. Mackenzie

Heaps of birds are out feasting on the autumn seed heads. The contrasts of seasons with the snowy mountains behind orange fields isn’t bad neither.

4. Eastwood Hill

Near Gisborne is autumn’s hidden gem. Eastwood Hill is a arboretum (tree park), so as you can imagine, this is the best place for rolling in the leaves.

5. Marlborough

Autumn is the best time to experience the Queen Charlotte Track on the Marlborough Sounds. It is uncrowded making it feel like just you and the peaceful world around you. Marlborough is the top wine-making region so a pretty sight are the rows and rows of vineyards.
