Enjoy the Beauty of the
Virtual Rose Garden
28 & 29 November 2020
The Peaceful Land of Joy gardens will be shared online with the community
on the weekend of 28 and 29 November 2020.
The Tibetan Buddhist Society’s Rose Garden Open Days have been held on site twice a year for more than 25 years.
Due to ongoing uncertainty about the COVID rules in the usual planning and implementation phases the Society decided to offer virtual Rose Garden Open Days this November.
On this website you can view our collection of exhibits, featuring a virtual garden tour, photo galleries showing our traditional Tibetan temple and peaceful gardens in full colour and bloom, and more.
The Society’s founder, Venerable Geshe Acharya Thubten Loden, who was born in Tibet, developed these gardens as one of his countless ways to repay the kindness of Australian people for the opportunity to live in this country, and receive the support and shelter of Australia over many years.
Your enjoyment of the virtual Rose Garden Open Days is offered free, as part of the Society’s ongoing community support.
Other information about the gardens includes:
• Volunteer gardeners have worked all year round – a very small team of centre residents volunteered during lockdown, and when rules allowed outside volunteers to join them - to cultivate and maintain these delightful gardens.
• The gardens feature an abundance of trees including a circle of beautiful Golden Robinias, large Californian Redwoods, Olive groves and so many colourful flowers – many varieties of stunning roses, salvias, marigolds, satin hibiscus and more.
