The world-renowned Jacaranda Festival is held yearly in Grafton, Northern Rivers New South Wales. It was inaugurated in 1935 and was the first of Australia's folk festivals. It is based upon the magnificent spectacle of the hundreds of lilac-blossomed trees which grow in Grafton's broad tree lined avenues and it expresses the people's thanksgiving for the generosity with which nature has blessed this part of Australia.

We are very lucky to be here on the last Saturday of the Jacaranda Festival as today is Parade Day. We have the rest of the afternoon to purchase lunch, wander the Grafton gardens or simply take in the festival fun before we see all the excitement of the Grand Float Procession this evening. We return to the motel for a later dinner. (lunch own expense / motel dinner)
