SCENIC and historic Rosedown will welcome visitors this weekend under Australia’s Open Garden Scheme. Situated on the bank of the Derwent at 134 Hamilton Rd, New Norfolk, Rosedown features an 1840s cottage surrounded by hundreds of stunning roses including David Austin and Alister Clark cultivars.
Paths weave beneath fine specimen trees touched with an autumn hue, vine-covered arbours, a tranquil pool and long-flowering cottage perennials. Admission is $5 per person. There will be plant sales and lovely picnic spots are available. Open from 10am to 4.30pm this weekend (February 28 and March 1).
