Charles Newman Rose Garden

 

Home to over 150 rose varieties the Charles Newman Garden offers a bouquet of floral aromas and a spectacular visual display, particularly when in full bloom. This garden gives an understanding of the true meaning of the phrase, ‘stop and smell the roses’.  Four sandstone fountains line the centre of this pristine garden allowing for the echo of water to resonate throughout.

Weeping Rose Garden

The luxuriant hues presented as the roses drape over the sculptured rose stems offer a marvellous display of colour and structure.  The magnetic charm of this area draws the humming of birds and endearing koalas, which encapsulates a perfect picnic setting.

Overlooked by the Jubilee Complex that is cloaked by vibrant purple wisteria, this garden presents a truly stunning location.
