Sure, autumn might be the time we start wearing our warmer gear as temps start to fall. But it’s also without question that one of the best things about autumn is the leaves of trees changing colour and falling to the ground.
There’s nothing like taking a stroll and snapping photos of the reds, yellows, and more. Here in Perth, there are a few spots that really put on a show when it comes to the season change.
One of our favourite spots to catch autumn colours in Perth is Raeburn Orchards, which over the years, has become widely popular on Instagram. Although there’s a small entrance fee of $5 per adult (kids under 12 free), it’s totally worth it to wander through the leafy sea of autumn colours.
Around Perth, the leaves start boasting their autumn hues around late April. Raeburn Orchards will be open this year from May 1 – 31 for the Persimmon Season, which includes orchard walks, cider tasting and a café on-site to get all cosy at.
You can find the orchards at 4 Raeburn Rd, Roleystone.
While Raeburn Orchards may be the best spot to catch autumn colours in Perth, you can also catch the leaves at Hyde Park near Leederville, as well as Kintail Road and Ardross Street at Applecross, which are both lined with trees that drop colourful leaves in autumn.
