Five rooms are spread throughout the two-story venue, leaving plenty of places for your guests to mingle and explore.

A venue at its prime from October to May this is the perfect place to hold your next event amongst the blooming roses. The pavilion is an incredible sandstone structure that can accommodate up to 80 guests for a cocktail event. However if you are looking for something larger, Forte Catering & Events have created some incredible events within marquees and the Rose Gardens is a beautiful place to hold such an evening with space for up to 200 guests.
