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

The roses were just past their prime but there were many still blooming,moment with exquisite scents! Obviously old world roses and very lovely colours. We needed more time to really appreciate the whole garden. Don't try and do both Woolmers and Brickendon in the same day, it's too much to take in!
