I was here in mid-November, which was likely to late in the growing season to be visiting a rose garden. In full bloom, however, I bet it would be beautiful.

The entire botanical gardens is well worth a look. While the roses were only just starting to show colour, there was lots more in the same gardens to look at.

An appealing menu, very friendly staff, great atmosphere, and you can visit the begonia house when you've had enough to eat.

When we were there not many roses were seen but still we saw some. It is bottom of the botanic garden, some walk from the cable car station.

As it was winter, the actual amount of flowering roses was minimal, but I could easily see how spectacular it would be in the proper flowering season. Nice to just leisurely walk around and enjoy the range of plants. Also very clean and well maintained.

Huge range or Roses and good range of tropical plants inside shed. Don't miss to visit at least once in summer for rose season. And whole year for inside tropical plants.

Great coffee in the cafe and a wonderful place to look at some amazing flowers. Check out inside for more interesting flower species

My absolute FAVOURITE part of the botanical gardens, the greenhouse is a close second. The cafe is close by and you can see the roses from inside.

Option 1: The place where you board cable car on lambton quay, they have mobility related electric wheel chair, check with them. Not too sure if they still have this facility. Worth give them a ring. Option 2: Other solution... More
