As the days get shorter, and summer slowly becomes a distant memory, we begin to realize that autumn is well and truly here.

With warm colored leaves covering the ground and the comeback of boots and sweaters, this season is definitely a cozy one! We’ve lined up 6 fantastic Autumn activities to do throughout the coming months so you can make the most of this stunning time of year.

Hit the Road              

      

The age-old Sunday afternoon tradition, and all you need is a car, some snacks and a friend or two to come along for the ride! The best part about this pastime if that you can literally go anywhere! For Melbournians, the Macedon or Dandenong Ranges are two beautiful spots to have a picnic and enjoy watching the leaves fall off the trees. Can’t you just feel the serenity from here? A perfect snack to take with you would have to be our Mini Blueberry Friands.

Have a Bake-Off                  

You guessed it, our favorite way to spend an Autumn day. From our Mixed Berry Tarts, to Cherry & Almond cake, you will have your entire home smelling sweet, and your bellies will be full and warm. We suggest inviting some family members over and getting the kids in the kitchen so that you can have a huge day of baking to stock up for Winter.

Play Board games     

             

Such a great way to connect with family/friends and bring out some competitive fun! Our favorite is the classic Monopoly which gives hours of fun for the whole family and is a great way to teach your not-so-little-ones about the basics of finance!

Take a Hike       

               

Literally! A walk is good for the mind and the body, so why not rug up and get hiking! Australia has some of the most beautiful spots to walk and hike – so you have a huge array of choices. Once you get into it and start to warm up, we’re sure you will enjoy each minute!

Hop into the Hot Springs

A great way to spend the day with the girls! Hot springs are the “in-thing” right now, and what better way to spend a cool Autumn day? The Peninsula Hot Springs just South of Melbourne is a huge attraction and they will have you relaxing in no time!

Eat your way through Easter          

        

Because why not? It’s no secret we love our food, and it just so happens that Autumn is home to a favourite holiday of ours, Easter! It’s a great chance to unwind, relax and eat to your hearts content. We recommend our Ricotta Hotcakes, or Blueberry Scones for a real sweet treat over this time of year!

We hope you have now got some #inspo into how to spend your Autumn days! Let us know what you’re up to by visiting our Facebook, Instagram or Twitter pages! We’d love to see!
