The first touch of autumn is in the air; slightly cooler nights, less humid days, a few stray leaves beginning to fall. But, being Brisbane, we've got a little while yet to wait for the complete autumnal experience.

Those of you who are feeling the need for a full-on burst of autumn colour after the recent rains can rest easy because the Regatta Hotel is coming to the rescue with Colours of The Season. And, oh, what colours they are!



There are two prongs to the Regatta's recipe for autumn deliciousness and you can enjoy them both until the onset of winter.

🍂 Autumn in the Courtyard

At the Regatta's open-air courtyard you'll be surrounded by autumn foliage of every hue: russet, cinnamon, topaz, burnished gold, and marmalade spill from the ceiling canopy, while masses of leaves decorate the booths. And the pièce de résistance is a 5m tall tree.

And the colours aren't just in the leaves. They'll also feature in the range of specially curated autumn cocktails from negronis and sangria to punch and apple spritz.

Autumn in the Courtyard is open all week and no reservations are necessary.

🍁 Picnic in the Park

Autumn in Brisbane is spectacular picnic time and the Regatta will be hosting its own picnic every Sunday afternoon. As well as the autumn weather, colours and cocktails, you'll be beguiled by live music from a three-piece band and delectable autumn food including BBQ, share platters and grazing boards.

Picnic in the Park is on from 12 noon to 5pm every Sunday from 15 March to 31 May. No reservations are necessary.

Your Comment
Geraldine, it's good that we can still celebrate autumn in Brisbane even though we don't have the tree changes that cooler areas enjoy.
