Tourists flock to residential street in North Sydney to get a picture with blooming jacaranda trees

Eager photographers have lined a Sydney street to get a picture with blooming jacaranda trees as their canopies turn purple once again.

Every October and November, Sydneysiders and tourists alike make trips into northern suburbs including North Sydney, Greenwich and Longueville to take snaps with the trees.

Jacaranda trees have been in Australia for 150 years and the non-native species are often planted close together, creating a stunning sea of blue and purple over the road.

McDougall Street in Kiribilli proved particularly popular with keen social media users on Friday, hoping to capture the road in a blanket of purple blooms.

But although the colour appeals to some, residents find the falling flowers and droppings of sap a hassle to clear from their yards and cars.

Tourists stop traffic by posing in the middle of the road for a picture perfect snap for Instagram, causing further hassle for residents.

Social media pictures showed people stood in the centre of the street as their friends crouched down to get the most flattering angle.

Others showed cars trying to make their journey down the narrow road, but being blocked by people taking photos. 

One couple even took their baby down to take in the gorgeous views and get pictured to post online.

Some people were seen huddling in with their friends and family to get pictures.

But others took COVID-19 precautions more seriously and wore a mask while taking snaps of the idyllic views. 

Other popular areas to glimpse a jacaranda tree include Lavender Bay, the Botanical Gardens and Camden.

Every year the town holds a festival dedicated to jacaranda trees.

This year the nine-day festival was cancelled, but there are plans for it to return in 2021 once again.
