Jacaranda Trail and The Waterfall Way

Jacaranda Trail and The Waterfall Way

Visit Grafton to celebrate the natural wonder of the countless avenues of Jacaranda trees that blanket the city, turning from green to purple, ready for the Jacaranda Festival. Go camera crazy as you photograph tree lined streets, resplendent in wonderful shades of a mauve and purple ‘carpet’. Another highlight of this tour is sure to be the spectacular scenery on offer as we travel along the Waterfall Way through Bellingen and Dorrigo.
