Treetops ablaze in amber and gold, the rustle and crunch of leaves underfoot, soft winds in bare branches and fields tinged with green growth. The perfect time to enjoy alfresco dining, cool climate wines and some of the wonderful fresh produce that is produced in abundance in the Blackwood River Valley region.
Winter mists, lichen on bark, crackling log fires, tumbling streams brooks and rivers. Good food with mulled wines and many chances to sample cheeses and other products at local markets.
Pockets of swirling mists, trees bursting with bud, wildflowers and golden wattles in a riot of colour. Chattering parrots, warbling magpies, and an abundance of bird life. Fabulous bushwalks.
