Rose Garden Open Days - weekend of 30 Nov and 1 Dec

12 noon – 4 pm - Free entry

The Peaceful Land of Joy gardens will be open to the community to enjoy and experience the peaceful gardens in full colour and bloom.

Volunteer gardeners have worked all year round for many years to cultivate and maintain these delightful gardens. The weekend features:

  • Thousands of trees including golden robinias, Californian redwoods and the olive grove.

  • So many colourful flowers - roses, salvias, marigolds, satin hibiscus and more.

  • Free entry to the gardens is offered on the Rose Garden Open Days as part of the Society's ongoing community support.

  • Freshly-baked home-made scones soup and cake in the temple courtyard café - reasonable prices.

  • Free tours of the gardens and temple, and guided meditations and talks.

  • The Enjoyment Shop will be open all weekend.

  • A second-hand bookstall with thousands of titles covering many categories - all reasonably priced.

    The Society's founder, Venerable Geshe Acharya Thubten Loden, who was born in Tibet, developed these gardens as one of his countless ways of repaying the kindness of Australian people for the opportunity to live in this country, and receive the support and shelter of Australia over many years.

    Tibetan Buddhist Society, 20 Cookes Rd (access from Mickleham Rd), Yuroke, Vic 3063 45 minutes from the CBD, 10 minutes from Tullamarine Fwy exit.
