Sydney in Spring: The Perfect Time to See These Flowers!
Updated: May 24
Spring in Sydney is such a beautiful season! There are some definite highlights as far as blooms that occur around the city! Check out these amazing displays of flowers that only occur for short periods of time!
Cherry Blossoms at the Auburn Botanic Garden
Every year, Auburn Botanic Garden displays their beautiful Cherry Blossoms that only bloom for a short period of time at the end of August. The Auburn Botanic Garden even puts on an entire Japanese Festival included with Japanese entertainment and food. Entry tickets are $7.50 early bird, or $10 at the entrance. It does get quite busy, so it is best to arrive at opening time. The gardens open at 9 AM and close at 5 PM. Click here for more information and to purchase your ticket.
How to get there:
1. If you're coming from the city, you can take the train from Town Hall to Bankstown. From Bankstown, take the bus from the Bankstown station stand D until the Cumberland Rd at Chiswick Rd stop. From there, you can walk to the Botanic Gardens. It's about a 13 minute walk. In total, it will take an hour and fifteen minutes from the city by public transport.
2. If you have a car, you can drive to the gardens and park just nearby. It's about a 40 min drive from the center of Sydney to Auburn.
Paper Daisies at Mount Annan
One of the prettiest blooms is the Paper Dasies at Mount Annan! This stunning display of yellow, white, and pink flowers occurs mid September to mid October at the The Australian Botanic Garden at Mount Annan. It is completely free to visit these beautiful flowers! The best way to reach this garden is by driving. There is free parking available at the gardens.
PLEASE do not sit in the flowers! There are walkways between flower beds that give the illusion of sitting in the flowers, but it destroys the flowers when you sit in the middle of them, and also removes the pleasure of other people seeing the flowers when they look like they've been trampled on.

Jacaranda Season in Kirribilli
When Prince wrote the hit song "Purple Rain," I'm sure this is exactly what he envisioned. Trees lining the entire neighborhood of Kirribilli that just shower down purple petals. It really is one of the most beautiful blooming seasons in central Sydney. The blooms begin late October and peak in the first two weeks of November. Kirribilli is the easiest neighborhood to get to as there is a train station at Milson's point. Once at Milson's point, walk towards MacDougal street- where the heaviest of blooms are. Please be respectful of the residents as this is a neighborhood that people live in!
Spring time in Sydney is absolutely beautiful! If you're visiting at this time of year, make sure to check out all of these blooms! I would love to see what you get up to, so please tag me in your pics on Instagram or share with me through email!
