Making the Most of Melbourne in Autumn

Not sure what to do this autumn? Melbourne has incredible festivals and stunning scenery perfect for this time of year. In this blog we are sharing the best things to do this autumn.


Groovin The Moo

The music festival to go to this autumn is Groovin The Moo. The line-up is impressive this year with artists like Sampa the Great, Alex Lahey, Paul Kelly, Baker Boy and Grinspoon. This year Groovin The Moo will be in Bendigo, just a few hours out of Melbourne. You can plan and book your shuttle with us.

Comedy Festival

There is something for everybody at the world-renowned Melbourne International Comedy Festival. The whole city transforms this time of year with laughs around every corner, just take a walk down Swanston St on a Friday night and you’ll end up in a theatre laughing your head off. Book your tickets soon as the festival only runs from March 28th to April 22nd.

Yarra Valley

Yarra Valley has some of Victoria’s most luxurious wineries and stunning views. In just an hour’s ride from Melbourne you can go for a hike, check out the wildlife at Healesville Sanctuary and then taste some of Australia’s finest wines and sit back to take in the autumn view.

Peninsula Hot Springs

As the weather begins to cool you can warm up at the Peninsula Hot Springs. You can soak in the stunning natural hot springs or pamper yourself at the day spa. Just a 90-minute shuttle from the city, the hot springs is a perfect place to relax and chase away the oncoming chill.

Mount Macedon

During autumn, the lush green trees on Mount Macedon turn into warm golden paradise. A drive up honour Avenue feels being transported into a fairy tale, as does a walk through the open gardens. There you can really take in the breathtaking autumn colours. Mount Macedon has a lot of amazing restaurants, cafes and galleries that are worth checking out. It is also close to other iconic attractions like Hanging Rock.
