Although indigenous to South America, Jacarandas have certainly found a home in Australia. The purple Jacaranda blossoms can be seen in most Australia’s cities from mid-October until the end of December, making the streets look magical and dreamy. Are you wondering where to see Jacarandas in Perth? It’s not hard to spot them during the season, but the thing is that some streets are always more purple than the others, and those are the places you want to check out late spring in Perth. The list of best locations below.
Applecross is undoubtedly, the most famous Jacaranda location in Perth. Not one, not even two streets, but the entire suburb turns into a purple wonderland in late spring. This is why it’s hard to choose the best spot here. Just drive around, and stop wherever you see those purple beauties. People love to take photos on Nisbet Road. It’s a pretty special street, lined with Jacaranda trees planted close to each other. Have a look at below pictures. Aren’t they beautiful? Make sure to pop in here from mid-November to mid-December.
On the other side of the river, around 13 km from Applecross, there is another place where you can see Jacarandas in Perth. In fact, this street was named after them, so it’s quite clear that you will find those blooming beauties there. Having said that, make sure to visit Old Jacaranda Way in Subiaco. This district is full of fancy houses that look fabulous with Jacaranda trees in the pictures. Are you keen to see more? Mere View Way turns purple in Subiaco in late spring too. Make sure to check it out. It’s just around the corner.
Kings Park is a must-see place in Perth. Truly loved by people living in the city, as well as by the visitors. It’s a perfect spot for a morning jog, afternoon coffee, and evening stroll. If you happen to be around in late spring, make sure to walk through Mount Street and Bellevue Terrace. These two streets are full of blooming Jacarandas during the season. Mount Street is also my favourite spot around Perth where you can admire those purple beauties. Have a sit on the bench hidden between the trees, and enjoy the moment!
Any other locations where you can see Jacarandas in Perth? Of course! It’s time to talk about East Perth. Make sure to walk around Hyde Park, an unquestionable Jacaranda hot spot in this suburb. Another must see place is Malborough Street. In my opinion, one of the coolest Jacaranda locations in the entire city. The street looks lovely during the season, and gives you an amazing opportunity to take some fantastic pictures. Baker Avenue is not too bad either. Park your car next to Birdwood Square to see the trees up close.
North Perth should be also on your radar during the Jacaranda season. Make sure to visit Bulwer Street, near Violet Street. There’s a lovely spot with a bench between the beach volleyball court, and Bethanie West Perth Social Centre. Absolutely stunning! Next location that caught my attention is Leake Street. This spot offers an incredible opportunity to capture a Jacaranda lined street with Perth skyline in the background. North Perth is close to East Perth, so you can visit both suburbs in one go. A car comes in handy though!
Victoria Park is a suburb full of restaurants, cafés, and bars, buzzing during the day, as well as at night. It’s also another place in the city where you can find some blooming Jacarandas. Keep your eyes peeled for those purple beauties on Lichfield Street and McMaster Street. It’s worth to mention that each season is a bit different. In 2020 the purple blossoms started showing up in late October. In 2021 the trees were turning purple not sooner than in November. What next year will bring? Hard to say! We’re going to find out.
