The long warm Summer evenings start to shorten as they make way for the bright orange and red hues of the Autumn leaves.

An Autumn visit to Queenstown isn’t complete without taking a drive to Arrowtown. The historic gold mining town sits along the bank of the Arrow River which is home to one of the most impressive displays of Autumn colours the region has to offer.
Another drive for the Autumn enthusiast or budding photographer is the road to Glenorchy. The hillside and lakefront which border the road are swathed in red and gold trees, succumbed to the changing temperatures of Autumn.
