Submitted by on May 11, 2011 – 12:40 amNo Comment

If you love roses, Road Trips Gardeners, consider a trip down under to see the Rose Maze at Kodja, 143 Albany Highway, Western Australia.

This garden has 1,700 roses is in the form of an octagonal maze formed of shrub roses and climbers surrounded by rose hedges. All 106 varieties in the garden were bred in Australia.

The Kodja Place Visitor and Interpretive Centre was started in 2001, and tells the story of the country of Australia. Four years in the making, it’s the attempt by one community to explore and present its common story.

The Rose Maze incorporates the story of three representative but fictional women in the Kojonup district throughout the 20th century.
