Rosedown Gardens are found in New Norfolk which is about 37 km up the Derwent River from Hobart. The about 1.8 hectare/4.5 acre gardens were started from scratch by the owners Brenda and Ian Triffitt.
The garden has masses of roses but in springtime you will also find delightful daffodils, crab apples and beautifully scented lilacs. It also harbours exotic trees and shrubs.
Peter Cundall described it as, “an old fashioned or proper garden”.
The late Georgian house was built in the 1840s.
