    Default South island - autumn colours

    Hiya all, I am planning a photography trip to the south island. Generally when do the colours peak? Mid to late April? Areas of Tekapo, Twizel, Wanaka and maybe Cromwell, is Cromwell worth it?



    Thanks.

    Definitely Arrowtown. This was late April 2014

    Central Otago - Queenstown, Arrowtown, Cromwell, Wanaka - all worth a visit. Autumn colours are starting here (Invercargill) now, but we don't get the spectacular ones that Central gets. I think I am saying, that the autumn colours may be earlier this year. But check with another informant.
    Now-if I could just remember where I left my brain...

    And don't forget Lake Hayes, always drove past there on the way to Arrowtown.

    What a b u g g e r we are selling all that land to those grotesque billionaires, and they will lock-up access to those lovely spots in the future.

    lurking.
