Welcome to the Victoria State Rose Garden website. With over 5000 roses (covering about 6 acres), the Victoria State Rose Garden is one of the tourist gems of Victoria.
Awarded the International Garden of Excellence by the World Federation Of Rose Societies in 2003, it was the first rose garden outside of Europe to receive this Award and the only one (at that time) cared for entirely by volunteers.

What's happening in the Garden?

The garden looked magnificent in Spring and early Summer with a stunning display of vibrantly coloured blooms throughout the whole garden. The roses stood up remarkably well to the many spells of hot Summer weather.  Now the Autumn flush of modern roses is continuing to produce masses of flowers. Deadheading finished on 8th April so come over Easter to see the masses of flowers before the spent blooms lessen the spectacle. Follow the link to see more photos  Read more...

New Formal Entrance for the Victoria State Rose Garden

New Formal Entrance for Victoria State Rose Garden is clearly visible from the carpark.

The improvement is long overdue with visitors previously unable to locate the garden entrance due to foliage and inadequate signage. The new entrance is a metal arch with our name inscribed and a side panel showing the plan of the 4.5 hectare garden, all of which is clearly visible from the car park. Entry is free but all donations are gratefully accepted as the Garden is maintained by volunteers.
