Jacaranda's most beautiful babies

EVERY parent thinks their baby is the most beautiful, but this Jacaranda it was Jennifer Laurie's four-month-old Unique Laurie-Davis who won overall champion in the Jacaranda Festival's Beautiful Baby competition.

"I knew that she was the most beautiful baby," Ms Laurie said.

"I feel really happy and pleased that she's won it... but there are actually a lot of beautiful babies around, but now that my baby has come out the best I feel over the moon."

Ms Laurie has been coming to festival for as long as she can remember and wanted to share her love of Jacaranda with Unique.

"It's a special way for her to come in and get involved," she said.
