Jacaranda: Australia’s Prettiest Blooms and Where to Catch Them

Jacaranda Blooms are a common sight in Australian spring and can be found in several areas like Sydney, Brisbane, Perth, Adelaide and more!

Each spring, Australia transforms into an amethyst abode thanks to the jacaranda blooms. For two months in October and November, the sidewalks come alive with sprinkles of lilac from the trees and serve as a feast for the eyes of locals and tourists alike. Although not native to Australia, these sub-tropical blooms can be found in several parts of the land Down Under, most prominently in Sydney. We’ve compiled a list of places you can find these stunning trees.
