House of Representatives garden.
Parliamentary gardens, Up until 1989 were only exclusively for use by the Parliamentarians and were not open to the Public. They were for use by Members, Senators and their staff as a place for relaxation and retreat.
In 2004, they were reconstructed and opened to the Public to enjoy.
Broinowski Rose Garden is named after one of the 1st public servants to be transferred to Canberra who was involved in the development of the capital.
When facing Old Parliament House from the front, on the right hand side is Gardens which include a Cricket pitch and Tennis courts. The Roses are Old English ?David Austin? roses, and are planted with Lavender, Delphiniums, Foxgloves, Penstemon, and Irises, making it a very pretty garden.
The garden has timber Pergolas with climbing Roses and Wisteria.
Lovely in Spring, when the Roses were at their best.
