Enclosed by four pergolas, the Rose Garden is a highlight for many visitors to the Gardens. Featuring over 8000 roses full of fragrance and beauty, the Rose Garden is corkscrew shaped to honour our location and association with the surrounding Hunter Valley vineyards. The shape also ensures the best views of the stunning flowers.
The showcased rose varieties within the garden include: Double Delight, Charles De-Gaulle, Freesia, Fragrance, Marlena, Bonica and Blue Moon. In total, there are 35,000 rose bushes of over 150 different varieties of roses across the Gardens.
At the heart of the Rose Garden are thirteen beautiful bronze statues of Imelda Roche and her twelve grandchildren. This garden is also known as “Grandmothers Garden” and pays respect to beautiful bond between grandmothers and their grandchildren.
