  • This has always been one of my favourite spots in Auckland to take visitors and it still has that appeal. Some of the names for some of the roses are becoming difficult to read or have disappeared altogether, but in the presence of so many lovely roses, this is minor.
  • An absolute beautiful display of colour and such a great variety of roses in one confined area. Have not ever visited the gardens and we were blown away well maintained and overlooking the Auckland harbour. Good walking paths for leisurely stroll. A nice spot to walk around and smell the extensive collection of roses. Worth a visit when the roses are in full bloom. we got off the hop on hop off bus here well worth a visit lots of very nice roses and wonderful scents also nice views from here
