Purple Rain: Jacarandas in full bloom in South East Queensland
We may not get the changing leaves of autumn or the frosty white tips of snow here (except for in our lovely Southern Queensland Country region), but spring is the time when the Jacarandas bloom to paint the town purple from Brisbane, to the Gold Coast and out to the country.
We put the call out for the best spots to see Jacarandas in South East Queensland in all their blooming glory and these are some of the best.
Prince, eat your heart out.
