The Rose gardens are a little bit out of the way but are beautiful. You do get a sense of being in a lovely old English garden. There is an old stone archway at one end known as The Elephant and lots of varieties of roses to stop and smell. And when you are finished, there are a couple of cafes nearby or you can take a downhill walk towards the water for a pleasant stroll along Tamaki drive.
