Goldleaf Plains is the first world in Newer Super Mario Bros. DS. It is an autumn-themed plain heavily inspired by Newer Super Mario Bros. Wii's Goldwood Forest. It is represented by some Super Leaves over an orange sky.

Its tower boss is Bowser Jr. and its castle boss is Bowser.


Goldleaf Plains takes place in an autumn-themed field beside Princess Peach's castle. It has many plants, along with dead leaves scattered all across everywhere. The sky is orange with yellow hills and orange bushes. From Snailicorn Grove to Wiggler Woods and Leafpile Castle, there is an autumn forest setting with big red trees and poison water. A lot of leaves fall within that section. After Wiggler Woods, the levels go back to the autumn plains theme. There are several flowers, mushrooms, and Brick Blocks scattered throughout the world map. A river of light yellow water streams beside it.

Goldleaf Plains is automatically accessible upon creating a new save file. Completion of Leafpile Castle grants access to Crystalswoop Grotto in Crystal Sewers. Completion of Ropeblast Tower's secret exit grants access to World 1-Cannon.png, leading to Pumpkin Thornhill in Pumpkin Boneyard.
