I have always wanted to visit the country town of Grafton during its Jacaranda Festival to see the beautiful tree lined streets that I had seen in many photos. So I organised a short road trip taking in Grafton, Glen Innes and Warwick. Grafton is 340 km south of Brisbane in New South Wales. Grafton is the seat of Local, State and Federal Governments administration centre. It sits on the banks of the big Clarence River. It was established in 1851 and it still has many historic buildings.
Our Bed and Breakfast house was one of those. It is a heritage listed federation style old house.
The evening we arrived we went exploring the streets and parks to photograph the beautiful Jacaranda Trees in the golden light.
The flowers were starting to fall to make a purple carpet throughout the town.
