See New South Wales in Full Bloom This Spring

Australia’s New South Wales always has something to offer curious travelers, but this spring, its beauty becomes even more apparent with the blooming of flora and fauna. Tourists can look forward to seeing different towns awashed with lavender and other colors as a thousand Jaracanda trees and deeply hued wildflowers return to their former glory with the departure of winter.

A few activities have been lined up that tourists can take advantage of to see the glorious Jacaranda trees. Walking tours will be held at Sydney, which will start from the Royal Botanic Garden, and cover the imposing trees planted at Sydney Harbour Bridge, Sydney Opera House, and The Rocks.

The city of Grafton, a six-hour drive from Sydney, will have the annual Grafton Jacaranda Festival, happening from October 28 to November 5. Check out their Telstra Riverlight Festival (November 3), where scrumptious bites will be sold and music acts will entertain locals and out-of-towners alike. Jacaranda Thursday (November 2) will have free delicious breakfasts and an outdoor market that will appeal to travelers looking to get their retail fix.

Other than the Jacarandas, wildflowers will also take center stage. Visit the Mayfield Gardens’ Spring Festival, happening on October 19 to 29. Get lost in the Gardens’ traditional English maze, or plop on a boat and take a meandering trip around the reflective lake.

Adventurous trekers can also visit the alpine Kosciuzko National Park, which will be swathed with purple eyebrights and yellow billy buttons.

Witness NSW’s beauty by taking Singapore Airlines, Qantas, and Garuda Indonesia, all of which fly direct to Sydney.
