LOVE THOSE JACARANDAS!
In Brisbane, the kids at High School and Uni students know it is end of year exam time when they see the beautiful Jacaranda trees beginning to shower the streets of Brisbane with vibrant purple petals.
The town of Grafton in New South Wales has taken the celebration of this beautiful tree to a new level with the Grafton Jacaranda Festival. We visited Grafton for the first time this weekend and this is what we saw ....
A week of heavy rain had knocked the majority of flowers from the trees, but the sight was still spectacular.
Long avenues of purple disappear into the distance ......
......... and purple flowers carpet the grass beneath them
