Jacaranda Season in Brisbane

Brisbane's jacaranda season is in full bloom with the magnificent ornamental trees adding a burst of purple to parks and streets. Here's some of the best places around town to view the jacarandas:

Home to 146 jacaranda trees, this iconic inner city park is jacaranda central in spring , with its drive-thru jacaranda avenue and other glorious trees dotted around its expanse
This small secret park perched atop the cliffs of New Farm and adjacent to Howard Smith Wharves, is a vision in purple in October. Take a seat on the bench under a jacaranda tree and survey the city
Mowbray Park is a remnant of the riverine estate established in 1850 by the father of East Brisbane Reverend Thomas Mowbray and on which his house once stood.
This walk starts in the vicinity of Jacaranda Park in Yeronga and follows the river, passing over the Eleanor Schonell Bridge to University Of Queensland's campus with its glorious clusters of jacarandas
Enjoy a picnic or BBQ alongside the jacarandas at this quaint little riverside park nestled in South Brisbane between the William Jolly Bridge and the Kurilpa Bridge

Starting from Kangaroo Point's riverfront cafe restaurant Medley KP, which is framed by 2 glorious jacaranda trees, take the gorgeous jacaranda-lined riverside path to Dockside and return 

Other good places to view the jacaranda trees include the City Botanic Gardens, and Mt Coot-tha Botanic Gardens. And, for something completely different, check out the snowy white jacarandas at Roma Street Parkland.
