Scientific Name: Jacaranda Mimosifolia
Family: Bignomiaceae
Location: Suburb of Albion, Brisbane, Queensland, Australia

The city of Brisbane in Australia has a local reputation of having a significant population of Jacaranda trees. The University of Queensland in the city's inner west has a very high concentration of the tree, and due to the impressive display of purple flowers in mid-Spring, which wind up littering vast sections of the suburbs, local folklore claims that "one won't start studying for exams until the jacarandas have molted". This has led to the slang name "exam tree" being attached to the plant. At Sydney University there exists a similar expression "by the time the jacaranda in the main quadrangle flowers, it's too late to start studying for exams".

Jacarandas in bloom have become closely associated with Brisbane and South East Queensland. The Brisbane City Council have used jacarandas to line avenues, and commercial developments in some areas, particularly along the Brisbane River have incorporated jacarandas into their landscape design. The trees are common in parks throughout the city, most notably in a long curved avenue in the inner city New Farm Park, in Goodna, and in private backyards. Brisbane's hilly geography allows views of the city and suburbs in which the brightly coloured flowers can be easily seen for miles. The jacaranda has become so much a part of the city's identity that contemporary art, particularly of streetscapes, often incorporates the flowering jacaranda, despite the fact that it flowers for approximately six weeks from September through October.

When this beautiful tree drops its flowers they form a vibrant carpet below. But all those who love these magnificent trees are so sad because we know we won't see them in bloom again until next year.

35 Carpet - Old Government House, Brisbane Qld Australia

35 Carpet - Old Government House, Brisbane Qld Australia

Old Government House is one of Queensland’s most significant heritage buildings. It was the site of many key events in Queensland’s early history and architecturally it remains as a vital link to our colonial past. Completed in 1862, it was the home of Queensland’s governors until 1910. The House successively became the University of Queensland’s inaugural building, then the lecture rooms of Queensland University of Technology and the office of the National Trust of Queensland. It was the first building in Queensland to be heritage listed in 1978.

The building recently underwent a $15 million restoration. Major structural damage was repaired and original features were restored following heritage guidelines and current best practice. Several rooms now house interpretive displays telling the story of the House and of those who lived and worked here. The upstairs bedrooms have become a gallery dedicated to the permanent exhibition of the works of renowned Australian artist William Robinson. Visitors can enjoy coffee and light refreshments at the Old Government House Tea Room, based in the 1872 kitchen.

Recently reopened to the public as a museum and available for hire as an elegant venue for private functions, Old Government House offers a fascinating insight into colonial life in the early days of Queensland.
