The National Rose Society of Australia is comprised of five State Rose Societies. It is the practice for each State of Australia to provide the President of The National Rose Society of Australia in succession on an annual basis.

We request that any correspondence be directed to the Honorary Secretary, who will distribute it promptly to our five State organizations.

Each State Society conducts an annual Spring Rose Show and an Autumn Rose Show. Owing to very wide differences in the climates of our States, the timetables for these events vary as follows:

Spring Shows: Queensland early October
  New South Wales mid to late October
  Victoria early November
  South Australia October
  Western Australia October
Autumn Shows: Queensland May
  New South Wales March and April
  Victoria April
  South Australia April
  Western Australia April/May

There are many gardens in Australia. Some are open from Spring to Autumn. Others open very rarely, and a number are by appointment only. Please contact the National Secretary for lists of Gardens and Nurseries and their open dates.
