Cameron Highlands Rose Garden

Rose gardens are one of the classic attractions to see in Cameron Highlands.

Because roses grow exceptionally well in the cooler environment of Cameron Highlands. With some reaching the diameter of a large saucer plate!

These gardens usually feature more than just roses. And a couple of them have panoramic valley views due to their hilltop locations!

The rose garden is quite small in comparison to the previous rose garden in this list. But they have many colors and varieties all the same.

In addition to all their other tropical flowers, they have a myriad of hanging pitcher plants and other carnivorous plants.

It’s hard to miss this place if you’re planning to stop by the Kea Farm Market.

Established since 1989, the Rose Centre is off the main road about 15 minutes’ drive from Brinchang. Visitors can walk all the way up to the top of the garden as it sits on a small hill.

4. Robertson Rose Garden Cameron Highlands (Temporarily Closed)

This lesser-known multi-tiered rose garden is on a private hilltop property that overlooks the Boh Sungai Palas Tea Plantation.

And since the road in is the same one that visitors to the tea plantation will use, it can be tricky to drive to this place on weekends and public holidays with limited parking and many cars along the one-way road.

There used to be a sign for Robertson Rose Garden but the owners took it down during the pandemic.

If you follow the directions on Google, it will actually take you past the entrance of the road up to Robertson Rose Garden. But you can park at this spot and carefully backtrack (on foot) up the road until you reach a green gate that marks another inclining road.

We recently (early Nov 2022) went up to have a chat with the friendly owner who said that they have plans to renovate their house and redo the garden next year (the exact date is still unknown).

But when they are ready, they will put up a new signboard. There are currently no roses in the garden so there’s nothing to see for now.

PS: They sell homemade rose syrup made of rose petals at RM20 per bottle, it’s quite refreshing and more pleasant than commercial rose syrup.
