The National Rose Society of Australia was formed on 4th November 1972, when a meeting of representatives from each of the State Societies adopted a constitution. As a result, the newly formed national body qualified for membership to the World Federation of Rose Societies.
Each year all members of the State Rose Societies receive a journal – The Australian Rose Annual which keeps them updated with Australian Rose News and beautiful photos of the latest of roses available in Australia.
NRSA also helps to connect members around the world through its membership of the World Federation of Rose Societies (WFRS).
International Rose Conventions are held in an elected membership country every three years.
The WFRS publishes an official quarterly publication 'World Rose News'
and a quarterly newsletter from the Conservation and Heritage Committee called 'By Any Other Name'.
