The Festival of Roses at Woolmers Estate is set to showcase Tasmania's finest flowers, produce, and wine

Woolmers Estate is preparing for mass crowds to come and enjoy all that is to offer at the Festival of Roses on Sunday November 19.

Festival of Roses chairman Ian Goninon, who is also a Northern Midlands councillor, said the event will showcase the estate’s beauty.

“It’s about more than just the roses themselves, it’s about the enjoyment of the estate,” he said.

Mr Goninon said the annual event will highlight not only the estate’s historic rose garden, but also some of Tasmania’s finest food, wine, cider, and produce.

On display will also be plants, crafts, jewellery, photography, vintage cars, and antiques, with face-painting, balloons, and a jumping castle for children.

The event is set to draw large crowds, with previous years bringing between 8000 and 10,000 people into the estate, Mr Goninon said.

Special guests on the day include Paralympic shot-put Todd Hodgetts, Gardening Australia’s Jerry Coleby-Williams, and Longford-born writer Neil Kearney. 

Entry is $10 for adults, and entry is free for children under 16.
