Australia is a beautiful country with many places to explore in your own backyard.

See and smell thousands upon thousands of roses


Ruston's Rose Garden, located at 70 Moorna Street, Renmark, is the largest private rose garden in Australia and in fact, the Southern Hemisphere. The garden, covering approximately 26 acres, has more than 50,000 rose bushes with more than 4,000 varieties.



The property was originally a fruit orchard developed by Cuthbert Ruston. Cuthbert's son, David, had a passion for roses. He planted roses wherever he could and in the mid-1970s, he converted the property exclusively to roses. In years to come, David was recognised internationally as a rose expert and gained awards from the National Rose Society of England.



Visitors are welcomed to come, view and smell the thousands and thousands of roses free of charge. Besides roses, there are beautiful structures in the garden, one of which I particularly liked is "Looking at the world through rose coloured glasses".



There is also a restaurant and a special section set up with an aisle of beautiful white roses for wedding events.





Every October, the township of Renmark holds a week-long Rose Festival and Ruston's Roses was where it all began 26 years ago. For more details on the garden and its opening hours, visit their website.
