Purple Rain: 10 perfect Jacaranda photos that will make you fall in love with spring
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.
LOCATION: BRISBANE CITY
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.
LOCATION: NEW FARM PARK, BRISBANE
Notoriously famous for its Jacarandas at this time of the year, New Farm Park is definitely a place to go if you want to an artistic shot.
LOCATION: UQ CAMPUS, ST LUCIA
With a campus covered in purple, we’d prefer cramming outdoors.
LOCATION: MONTVILLE, SUNSHINE COAST
Jellies (sandals) + Jacarandas = bliss. If you’re visiting the Sunshine Coast, be sure to keep an eye out for Jacarandas in full bloom.
LOCATION: KANGAROO POINT, BRISBANE
Walk by the river at Kangaroo Point and you’ll find Jacaranda flowers scattered along your path.
LOCATION: BOONAH, SCENIC RIM
These flowers make even the barest fields pop with colour. Take a drive down to the Scenic Rim to see how Jacaranda Trees flourish.
LOCATION: LEIS PARK, LAWNTON
Even our furry friends can’t get enough.
LOCATION: ZILLMERE, BRISBANE
They’re even more beautiful up close.
LOCATION: GOODNA, SOUTH BRISBANE
In Spring, Jacaranda trees can make any street come to life.
LOCATION: FAIRFIELD, SOUTH BRISBANE
Jaw meet floor.
This is what it’s like to live in Brisbane during Spring. Why would anyone want to stay indoors?
