14 PHOTOS THAT PROVE FALL IN NEW ZEALAND IS THE BEST

Vibrant. Golden. Magical. Epic. No words really do justice to what New Zealand is like in the Fall.

I must admit, it is quite weird wrapping my head around the fact that fall in New Zealand does not go hand in hand with spiced pumpkin donuts, apple cider and Halloween costumes galore. But while the Northern Hemisphere (and my social media) is currently enjoying the blossoming cherry trees and longer days in the sun for the month of April, the South Island of New Zealand is being treated to one of the best showcases of #fall  in the entire world.

Don’t believe me? Here are 14 photos I took to prove it.

Christchurch:

Where the botanical gardens are just magical….

and orange leaves clash with the green silver ferns of the native ponga…

Lake Tekapo:

Where the golden hour never really stops….

and the magical colours create a perfect contrast with one of the country’s most photographed lakes (fact–there were at least 100 other people out when I took this photo at 6AM…)

Mt. Cook:

Where bushes of orange perfectly frame this snow capped mountain of perfection….

and crisp orange leaves line the teal blue glacier lake….

Lake Hayes:

Where rows of gold line the dirt roads….
and the reflections of autumn’s glory literally make your jaw drop….

and make anyone with a camera handy go absolutely photo mad (guilty as charged….)

Arrowtown:

Quite arguably the most magical place in all of New Zealand to experience fall. Where this cute little town center looks even cuter…and where vibrant orange and red pop out among the green…

which makes for a walk to definitely remember….

and where the leftover summer lupins are still mixed in with the golden leaves of Fall….

Seriously. I don’t care how basic I sound…#FALL #NZWinsAtFall.
