Time to set your GPS tracker to locate purple as we uncover the best spots around Perth to see Jacaranda trees in full bloom.
Hyde Park is a magical place and beautiful to visit at any given time. But once the Jacaranda trees are in bloom, it makes your visit to this inner-city park that extra bit of a fairytale experience. Make your visit to Hyde Park that extra bit sweeter by grabbing a coffee or Frenchly baked treat from park-based French street vendor, What the Flip, or by getting sticky fingers at the hipster favourite, upmarket patisserie, Chu Bakery, located across the road.
When in search of a sea of purple trees, look no further than the home of the annual Jacaranda Festival, Applecross Village. The sight of lilac hues will give your step an extra spring as Applecross’s beautiful bloom is nothing short of a neighbourhood spectacle. Cap off your tour with a bite from brunch mavericks Cioccolato Espresso.
Deeply rooted into North Perth suburbia lies the seasonal purple mecca, Leake Street. With Jacaranda trees fringing both sides, it gives the street an almost purple canopy with stunning views of the city skyline in the midst. Venture to neighbourhood coffee shop staple, Engine Room Espresso to make your spring outing that extra bit warmer.
Give your legs a bit of a work out by snaking along Inglewood’s avenues. From Sixth to Tenth, you’ll be seeing purple with the avenue’s towering jacaranda trees something of natural street art. Inject more colour into your Inglewood outing by heading to Finlay & Sons and grabbing yourself a colourful lunch.
Out with the footy colours of yesteryear and in with lavender hues as the Subiaco area beautifully blooms in the springtime. The best spot to catch a sea of purple (and no we aren’t talking about the Fremantle Dockers!) is heading to aptly named, Old Jacaranda Way. After you stroll down this tiny whimsical street, visit Subiaco Common for another treat to the scenic senses.
East Perth’s Marlborough Street exhibits a strip of purple paradise come into spring that is every bit worthy of a snap-happy affair. Catch some purple Zen before the big game at Optus Stadium or catch the purple ray post breakky at local favourite, Toast.
