Best places to see jacarandas in North Sydney - Clark Park, Milsons Point

As I was thinking back to all the places I went to capture the jacarandas, I was keen to venture out to somewhere different from the famous jacaranda street in Kirribilli (aka McDougall St). I suddenly remembered a place where I captured the jacarandas with the Sydney Harbour Bridge in the background. That was what motivated me to revisit Clark Park to recapture it again.

This was where I came to believe in the good old saying that everything old is new again. I arrived at Clark Park, Milsons Point with a fresh perspective and fresh set of eyes. It felt good to recapture something that I think everyone will like. It was also lovely to have this park mostly to myself and enjoy seeing the purple blossoms complimenting beautifully against the crisp blue skies. I had to stand on top of a public seat because I wasn't tall to get that view.

I also had fun capturing Clark Park from different angles. I think this is a great place to picnic away from the larger crowds and still have access to the harbour views.
