Jacarandas bloom across Ipswich

Thursday 30/9/2010

IPSWICH has turned purple a month earlier than usual this year and Goodna's famous jacaranda trees are already blooming.

The 78-year-old jacarandas near the Goodna Aquatic Centre on Brisbane Terrace have just started flowering, which Councillor Paul Tully said was unusual.

"Traditionally, jacarandas bloom in November at a time when university students are inspired to study for their end of year exams," Cr Tully said.

The best floral display of the purple blooms is at the Evan Marginson Park at Woogaroo Street, Goodna opposite the Goodna RSL Services Club.

This weekend is looming as an excellent time to view the freshly bloomed jacarandas with fine conditions predicted.

After a week of showers, which saw seven millimetres of rain fall on Tuesday, sunshine and temperatures in the mid20's are expected for Saturday and Sunday.

Rain is expected today.
