Make a holiday in Kirribilli October to November – this is the period that the Jacaranda Trees are in flower.
McDougall Street in Kirribilli is an ideal place to see these flowering beauties.
Tourists come from all over to take photographs of this street with the intertwining trees – see above.
The street is magnificent at this time of year.
Jacaranda trees are not native to Australia but they have certainly adapted well to our environment. They initially are from South Central America and the technical name is Jacaranda Mimosifolia or Jacaranda acutifolia.
It is commonly known as Blue Jacaranda, Black Poui or the Fern Tree
Fly into Sydney at this time of year and there is a purple/blue haze over the city from the Jacaranda’s in flower, it is spectacular.
The ground is covered by the blue flowers – it is like a fairy land.
The park which has picnic facilities in McDougall street, is great for the tourists to have a morning or afternoon tea amongst the trees, or buy or bring your picnic lunch and enjoy the atmosphere.
What a magnificent time of year to enjoy the beautiful flowering trees.
