Purple is the color of the month!
Are you ready to be drown in purple-ness? Because this is what this post is all about!! Be surrounded by pretty purple flowers.
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.
During that weekend, there will be life performances, food stalls, competitions, and car show etc all happening at the same time. There will definitely be a program that will suite you and your family.
The 2016 Goodna Jacaranda Festival will be held from the 28th to 30th October (this weekend!!) So, if you are around Brisbane this weekend, why not go and take a look?
