Directions to National Rose Garden at Woolmers
The National Rose Garden is at Woolmers Estate near Longford. If you are a photographer, artist, rose or garden fancier these 5000+ roses will delight you with their beautiful colours and delightful perfume.
The 1.53 hectares Rose Garden is a fine gathering of roses in a well-laid out garden with walkways and seating to allow a pause to enjoy the setting.
Not only is it one of the finest collections in the Southern Hemisphere but also a historical record as well with varieties displayed from the earliest European and China roses through to the roses of the twenty first century.
This garden displays all of the recognized rose families. There are at least 480 “names” from 30 “families”.
Set in rolling green Tasmanian fields with hedges, the garden is very much a part of the English heritage of Woolmers Estate and Tasmania.
Peak flowering time is October to April. Also enjoy the Heritage Vegetable Garden where traditional kitchen herbs and vegetables, suitable for a cool temperate climate, are grown.
Entry Fees Apply (with a range of concessions)
Opening Hours: 10am-4pm Daily (except Christmas Day).
