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.

Venture down to Alice Street and you’ll spot this beauty. There are more like her scattered throughout the city. Take a stroll through the City Botanical Gardens and you’ll have amazing opportunities to capture Jacarandas for your insta feed.

This is what it’s like to live in Brisbane during Spring. Why would anyone want to stay indoors?
