Come for the drive to see these sensational roses
Come outdoors and celebrate Spring. And there is no better way to do it than wander in a rose garden. If you would like to see the best roses in NSW, then head out of the city to see Hunter Valley Gardens. Every Spring and Summer, these extensive gardens are blooming with over 2 million blooms during the annual Rose Spectacular. See 35,000 rose bushes in over 150 different varieties.

The Rose Spectacular is on now and extends to November 12th, 2017. With 8 kilometres of wheelchair friendly walking paths around the various garden areas, you may need to make a full day visit. Why not take a weekend escape, stay in the area and see more of the Hunter Valley region on another day. Better still, if you have the time free, go during the week when it is quiet. The gardens are open 7 days from 9am to 5pm.
