We enjoyed the Rose Garden. Lots to see there, and we also walked around the outside of the buildings. Plenty of the Roses were still in bloom in March. Would be outstanding in Spring.

Lots of roses plus other flowers to enjoy. Well worth a visit. Set out very nicely and kept lovely by the one paid worker and volunteers.

I would not have believed there were that many types and colours of roses available. Garden beds are wonderfully set out and it is pleasant just to stroll amongst them, admiring the blooms and smelling the wonderful perfume.

Great display of roses and great food. Great day out. Car displays, beer, cider and wine. Music was quite old must still enjoyable

Linear layout in the old style, lots of roses, including many modern David Austin varieties. Good for strolling for an hour or so if you like roses. There is an adjacent culinary garden that looked very interesting but was closed off when we were there.

This garden is spectacular! I will visit each time I visit Tasmania. A truly magical space that you must leave adequate time to enjoy.

I'm not sure but based on the fact that it is summer I would hope that they would still be. Sorry I can't answer more specifically.
