Australia’s answer to cherry blossom season has arrived, as pockets of the country burst into colour with jacaranda flowers. The canopy of purple flowers are a delight for locals and travellers as the sight of the beautiful blooms carpeting the streets mark the arrival of the spring season.
The lower north shore of Sydney is especially picturesque during jacaranda season, with areas such as McDougall Street in Kirribilli becoming a popular attraction for visitors who come to see the street’s tunnel of flowers. The New South Wales regional town of Grafton also celebrates the splashes of purple arriving as it hosts the annual Jacaranda Festival, the oldest flower festival in the country.
Whether you’re a local looking to enjoy the spring blooms, or a traveller wanting to snap the picture perfect selfie for the gram, here are a selection of some of the homes available to book on Airbnb near beautiful jacaranda trees.
