So close to the city but such a delightful retreat from traffic and concrete. So many lovely roses, but take the time to discover beyond and visit Judges Bay down the hill, or the elegant and tranquil old French style gardens with their secluded seats...More

The gardens have an amazing collection of roses of all types and styles. During the day and early evening the scent of the Roses is heady and intoxicating. The visual splendour of the varios rose types is stunning.

Although the roses were staring to die off when we visited it takes little imagination to picture them in full bloom it must be an amazing site.

As mentioned we came act Reds it during a walk from our hotel in Gladstone Road. Hundreds of rises beautifully maintained, held in a nice lark with classic New Zealand native trees.

Loved seeing all the roses in bloom! More than 5,000 roses with benches so you can enjoy. I was surprised at how many people were visiting. This is a stop on the Hop On Hop Off bus too.

There will be some flowers in August, - it is the end of winter in Auckland, so they won't be at their best. The gardens are still worth a visit. Enjoy

Wouldn't be much to see as it's middle of winter and the plants and roses are dormant.
