Grafton Jacaranda Festival 2009
Be a part of the the world-renowned Jacaranda Festival held yearly in Grafton, Northern Rivers New South Wales, from Friday, October 30th and concludes on Sunday, 8th November.

The festival brings flowers competition, parades, concerts, boats, film festival, fun run and more events together. This is a festival set to express the people's thanksgiving for the generosity with which nature blesses this part of the globe. Inaugurated in 1934, this was the first of Australia's folk festivals and is based upon the magnificent spectacle of the hundreds of lilac-blossomed trees which grow in Grafton's broad tree lined avenues. Dont miss this unique and oldest celebration in Grafton.



Grafton is located on the Mid North Coast of NSW, 300kms south of Brisbane and 600kms north of Sydney. Interest yourself on a motorhome hire holiday in NSW. More about the festival at www.jacarandafestival.org.au
