International Rose Garden

The award-winning International Rose Garden takes visitors on a heady journey that's a delight to the senses.

As you wander around the garden you're drawn through a series of colourful, fragrant spaces, each cleverly revealing a rose collection from a different style of garden.

The overall structure and geometry includes a sunken garden, a circular garden and several pergolas, in perfect visual counterpoint to the adjacent rainforest conservatory.

The garden displays over 2,700 roses and more than 350 rose cultivars, while mixed companion plantings add lots of vivid seasonal colour.

There are areas devoted to Australian bred roses, single roses, heritage roses and pillar roses and much more.

As you saunter under a tunnel of climbing rose arches, you will find a beautiful display of roses selected for specific Australian causes (for example, the Leukaemia Foundation).

The garden is also home to the National Rose Trial Garden, which tests roses not yet commercially available in Australia.

In October 2022, the World Federation of Rose Societies gave it an Award of Garden Excellence, a title enjoyed by just four other gardens in Australia.

View it at its best in October-November when the first flush of the season is in full bloom, and again in April for the autumn flush. Visit any time throughout summer and you will be treated to a beautiful experience too.
