PICTURES: Get snapping with Autumn in Bendigo

Bendigo's first Autumn 'Instameet' was a hit over the weekend.

'Instameet' is the term used to describe a group of people gathering to take photos for social media site Instagram.

Amateur photographers gathered in Rosalind Park to kick off a day of taking photos.

Adelaide resident Gayle Hall, @susiqq on Instagram, travelled with her husband Joel and pet cockatoo CoCo to be at today's event.

"It's something I really enjoy doing," she said.

"I am most looking forward to visiting the old Gaol and getting some different shots.

"I have been looking forward to it for a while now."
