Sunday, 18th November 2018, open 9am – 4pm
The Festival of Roses will be held at the historic World Heritage Listed Woolmers Estate, 658 Woolmers Lane, Longford, which is near Launceston. The estate is Australia’s finest example of a pioneer farm from the early 1800s and one of Tasmania’s World Heritage Convict Sites, well worth visiting in its own right for the historical and cultural experience, but made even better when it is rose time. Celebrate the spectacle of thousands of roses blooming in the Rose Garden!
There will be a variety of food stalls including wood fired pizzas, Devonshire teas, crepes and breads, and a selection of wines, beer and cider. Other attractions include plant nurseries, craft and jewellery stalls, whip cracking, chainsaw art, vintage farm machinery and cars, and many children’s activities. Angus will be there to give a talk, and to soak up the wonderful Tasmanian experience. Hope to see you there!
