An array of roses and flowers to enchant and delight

'A rose by any other name would smell as sweet'. It would also look just as beautiful and roses and other beautiful flowers in many colours, sizes and shapes, will be on display at the 2014 Barossa Rose Show. Over 400 rose and other flower exhibits and more than 40 floral art entries (including children's exhibits) will be judged and on display and around 30 of these will receive Grand Champion and Champion awards.

The setting for the Rose and Flower Show is the beautiful Barossa Chateau which has a rose garden containing over 30,000 roses, one of the largest and most important collections in the world, and is worthy of a visit in its own right.
