This splash of colour at #CradleMountain has us totally feeling the #autumn vibes 🍂 This distinct golden hue that @beautyoftasmania captured is courtesy of 'Deciduous beech', or #fagus as it's more commonly known, #Australia's only cold climate winter-deciduous tree, that’s found nowhere else in the world but @Tasmania. Its annual foliage transformation from rust red through to brilliant gold has now started, attracting visitors and photographers from afar to capture this magical sight. TIP: Tassie’s alpine national parks, including @visitcradlecoast’s Cradle Mountain and Mt Field, are some of the best spots to see the fagus in all its glory, but get in quick, the next couple of weeks are when the colour is at its finest!
