A native of Brazil, hundreds of Jacarandas Mimosifolia were planted along the streets of Grafton NSW in the 1880's. Their purple flowers and petal carpets dominate the Grafton landscape in October and November each year. This year's 2014 celebrations will mark the 80th anniversary of the Grafton Jacaranda Festival.View more great photos from Thomas Hearne here.
