Parramatta Bus Trip - Rumsey Rose Garden

In spring, the roses at the Rumsey Rose Garden in Parramatta Park are at their peak. As a result, we wanted to be able to take residents on a bus trip to see this blooming marvel. Roses, and maybe a tour of some of the parks and buildings in Parramatta, followed by lunch, will make up the day’s happenings. The bus will leave from outside the Astra at 10am sharp.
