Autumn is hands down my favourite season. I loved it back in Poland, especially the so-called Indian Summer days (I much more prefer the Polish name – Złota Polska Jesień, which translates as Golden Polish Autumn) and missed it when we lived in Brisbane.
Last year I visited Adelaide and found a little bit of autumn, but it wasn’t much. Then in September I moved to Melbourne and at some point I realised I will be seeing autumn soon.
My Easter rental car booking was made with one very important mission in mind – we must find autumn.
Starting bright and early on Good Friday we picked Macedon Ranges as our first destination. Not far from Melbourne CBD, in Macedon town, we found autumn. Hello beautiful reds, oranges and yellows, I missed you.
It seems that Honour Avenue is the main autumn attraction. We weren’t the only one walking down the street with cameras in hand.
After completing mission “finding autumn” so quickly, we went for a hike checked a few other places, but none of them was as pretty as that one street in Macedon. We did find though (thanks to google maps function “avoid highways”) some interesting farm gates, selling apples, potatoes, flowers, eggs and home-made jams.
Before driving back home, we went to Lavandula – Swiss Italian Farm for a coffee. Lovely, idyllic place. A great way to end our successful road trip.
