The Ruston’s story dates back to 1919 when Cuthbert Ruston was given the land as part of a soldier settlement program. While the property was originally a fruit orchard David Ruston, one of Cuthert’s sons, indulged his passion for roses by planting them wherever he could.

By the 1970’s, David had completely converted the property to roses which eventually housed 50,000 species of rose and the National Rose Collection. David Ruston was internationally renowned for his knowledge of roses and contribution to the industry, which includes the birth of the Renmark Rose Festival.

Visitors are always welcome to come and view the gardens, which are currently being restored to their former glory.

Something cool is coming soon!
