There’s just under a month left of spring, but that doesn’t mean there’s not still some flowers left to blossom! That’s right, it’s finally jacaranda season once again, and now is the time to get out there and enjoy the purple people pleasers before the flowers all drop to the ground and make a sticky mess. They kinda pop up all over the city, but there are a few little hotspots where you can rub elbows with fellow influencers and wannabe photographers to add a few splashes of purple to your feed. Oh and a polite reminder there are usually people living near these trees and just trying to live their normal life, so be respectful!
Perth’s mecca when it comes to Jacaranda spotting, the streets of Applecross are lined with almost as many of the purple flowery boys as they are very big and expensive houses. They’ve become so synonymous with the area they have a festival to celebrate – the Rotary Jacaranda Festival – taking over Ardross St on the last Saturday in November every year.
Hyde Park & Leake Street
Perth’s favourite inner city park is filled with lush vegetation year-round, but it does really flare up with jacarandas at this time of year. The real treat is heading west along Vincent St and taking a left turn up Leake St, where you’ll be bathed in a sea of purple. Throw in the glorious old school architecture that only North Perth knows how to do, and you’ve got yourself one seriously pleasant afternoon walk.
Likewise if you’re feeling a lovely neighbourhood afternoon walk you could do a lot worse than The Avenues of Inglewood. Wind your way along Sixth to Tenth and be treated to a sea of purple that’d even make the Fremantle Dockers jealous.
