In the Southern Hemisphere, we are stepping into Summer, and one of the must do in Summer for Brisbanians are to go and see the jacaranda trees! Basically, these purple pretty flowers could be seen in every corner of Brisbane, but of course, there are places which I would highly recommend you to go and visit, such as The University of Queensland, New Farm Park, Kangaroo Point etc. But my favorite jacaranda viewing place must be at Goodna. Each year, they have a festival just to celebrate this beautiful season!

These pretty purple flowers are usually in full bloom during the month of October, and families and friends will gather underneath the trees for picnic and mingles. On a weekend of October every year, there is the famous Jacaranda Festival at the Evan Marginson Park, Goodna. It is a much loved community festival that celebrates the wonderfully diverse lifestyle in the region. With something for everyone and free entry, you cannot afford to miss it.
