Vibrant Autumn colour delights at Vaughan Springs

Wednesday 9 May, 2018

The weather may be getting colder, but that doesn’t mean it’s not a great time to get out into a park in Central Victoria. In fact - the cooler weather is perfect for enjoying a bushwalk and seeing the stunning Autumn colour.

For some of the brightest and most vibrant changing leaves, head to Vaughan Springs in Castlemaine Diggings National Heritage Park. This is one of the few areas out in the bush where you can also the see the bright autumn colours of non-native deciduous trees.

To find out more about Vaughan Springs and Castlemaine Diggings National Heritage Park go to and search by park name.

Quotes attributable to Parks Victoria Ranger Team Leader Noel Muller

“Vaughan Springs is a really interesting place to visit. Kids will not only love playing in the Autumn leaves, they can also enjoy the giant slide, skimming stones on the river, or playing in the open grassy spaces.”

“There are also many other great spots nearby in Castlemaine Diggings National Heritage Park where people can enjoy the sights and sounds of nature in Autumn and see remnants of traditional Aboriginal ways of life and European gold rush history.”

“All throughout the goldfields, fruit trees planted by miners long ago are also showing their autumn colours.”
