What it offers

Heritage Roses in Australia welcomes new members in Australia and overseas.

The benefits of membership include the fellowship of other like minded people sharing their love of heritage roses.

The HRIA Journal is issued quarterly in autumn, winter, spring and summer. It contains informative and interesting articles from renowned experts, details of coming events, regional reports and many other features.

Other benefits include:

The opportunity to join a regional group (please see list of co-ordinators) where activities include visits to gardens in the district and beyond, listening to renowned speakers in their field of expertise and on their journeys to other beautiful rose gardens of the world. 

Members also have the opportunity to attend a bi-ennial general meeting, and a national conference is usually held in a different state every two years.
