I have never experienced autumn before. It is a non existent season from where I am from, Indonesia. So while I am staying for a quite long term in Australia, I would really love to see the autumn color here. But apparently, the autumn vibe in Australia is not really hyped. I did my research and not many people talk about how autumn in Australia is. But from searching here and there, here are some of the best autumn vibes I can find in Victoria, Tasmania and Australia Capital Territory.
Before I started, all of the places are within the public transport network with a bit of walking here and there. I cannot drive and travel mostly by my own so I rely heavily on public transportations and walk. But if you can drive, I suggest you rent a car and explore more on the more remote areas because there are more beautiful autumn spotting places to see!
HOBART, T A S M A N I A
Beautiful houses in Battery Point area
Parliament House Garden
St. Davids Park
RICHMOND, T A S M A N I A
It was not on my plan to visit this place. Well, to be fair, I don't really know where to go in and around Hobart. So when I visit the Information Centre, I saw the pamphlet of this place and immediately fall in love!
This iconic bridge in Richmond is the oldest stone span bridge in Australia. Richmond is also the home for the oldest gaol in Australia.
Straight out of the fairy tale books

Super love the autumn vibes in Australia. It is not as hyped as autumn in European countries or Japan or Korea, but it is still beautiful! Would love to come back next autumn and visit other autumn spotting places in Australia!
