We are not rose experts and to provide information of our experiences would clearly be a case of setting ourselves up to fail or to be ridiculed… most likely both. All Australian states and territories have groups for rose enthusiasts. Of course your local garden centre/nursery are good sources for the ins and outs of growing roses.
Here is a link to the Australian Rose Society, which also has links to various state based organisations – www.rose.org.au.

René Barbier (1845-1931) of Barbier Frères & Compagnie, an early twentieth-century French company based near Orléans France. The nursery produced some very popular Ramblers including Alberic Barbier(1900), ‘Paul Transom’ (1901), ‘Alexandre Girault’ (1909), and ‘Albertine’ (1921). Most of Barbier’s climbers can be found in the Roseraie de L’Haÿ in Paris.
