Soak in the colours of Mount Lofty Botanic Garden

Missed the autumn colours? We’ve got you covered with spectacular imagery from the lofty heights of a drone.

Tens of thousands of visitors flocked to Mount Lofty Botanic Garden back in April to enjoy its stunning autumn display.

Spread over 97 hectares at Crafers, the garden features many established northern hemisphere trees including maples, oaks, elms, liquidambars, redwoods and ashes, all of which turn glorious colours in the cool Adelaide Hills autumns.

The garden has become so well known for its autumn splendour that 63,803 people streamed through the gates in April, necessitating weekend shuttle buses during the school holidays to ease the parking pressure.

It might have seemed like a blink or you’ll miss it opportunity – but not with the technology on hand these days.

You can enjoy some of the gorgeous visitor photos taken at the height of the display, or why not get a totally different perspective by checking out the vision below, taken from a drone flight over the garden.

Of course, autumn isn’t the only time of year to visit Mount Lofty Botanic Garden. It’s home to an enormous variety of native and exotic plants, including magnolias, rhododendrons, ferns, conifers and plants from South America, South-East Asia and India, and has something to offer in every season, including winter.
