I vfisited the National Rose Garden when I stayed at Woolmers in September 2014. Sadly it was not rose season, but even so the gardens were beautiful. The apple trees were in full bloom and the bumble bees were happily dancing from blossom to blossom. The tulips were also blooming. The gardens are very well set out as is the... More

We came in May and of course the roses were out of season. We will come back in nov when they are in full bloom. My husband and I were amazed at the sheer size of the garden. Well worth the look.

We have been fortunate to visit the Rose Garden on several occasions and have enjoyed the garden in all four seasons. At the height of flowering the garden is an absolute delight with fragrances filling the air. The garden is most enjoyable at other times for an understanding of the layout of the garden and the various varieties and colour... More

Visited the garden whilst at the adjoining Woolmers Estate, not being a greenthumb myself it was still interesting enough to have a wander around for a while. It was a little late in the season to enjoy a full bloom but enough were present to imagine it. It looks exactly like an English Rose garden with the Rotunda at the... More

We stayed at Woolmers and so the Rose garden was included. We were at the end of the rose season but it was still very lovely, and in the context of the entire property it was a special experience, we will go back when the roses are in high season

As an adjoining garden to Woolmers this rose garden is heavenly. We visited in November and June. Both beautiful times to be enhanced.

I had not visited this garden for some years, and on a recent visit I was amazed at how much it has grown and how truly beautiful it is. The setting is stunning – it is on a slight slope down towards the historic Woolmers Homestead, with the rolling green paddocks and hawthorn hedges of the Longford plains, and with... More

This is the most beautiful part of woolmers Estate. The gardens were in winter mode when we stayed but they were still lovely to see. Volunteers were happy to give us the history of the garden and chat about the variety of roses planted.

This is very likely the best rose garden in Australia. Well planned, plenty of variety, an idyllic location on an historic property in Tasmania's cool climate. There's also a herb and vegetable garden in use by the kitchen and accessible to public. The surrounding scenery is impressive, on a river, bordered by historic buildings.

So many roses I have never seen such a fabulous garden with so many of the same type of flower. The garden is laid out like an 18oo,s garden and that adds to the charme, make sure you looking To the vegetable garden as it has a lovely bird water feature
