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.

Successful State Rose & Garden Show

What a great day. The roses were magnificent on cue. Dark clouds went to white with sun breaking through, highlighting the myriad of colours of the roses. 

Such a well organised event with appreciative crowds soon loaded up with goods. Cameras were pointed in all directions looking for that perfect shot amongst the blooms. 

A keen photographer is nearly invisible amongst the blooms.
The roses drew compliments from everyone.
A lively Jazz band entertained visitors as they browsed.
Beds were completely covered in flowers.

What's Happening in the Garden Now?

It is the perfect time to visit right now.  Don't miss seeing the stunning display of vibrantly coloured blooms in all areas. There are amazing photo opportunities everywhere. The difficulty is to stop taking photos and just smell the roses!

The members of the Williamstown Camera Club sent these amazing photos from their recent visit.

Formal Entrance for the Victoria State Rose Garden

New Formal Entrance for Victoria State Rose Garden is clearly visible from the carpark.
We got a wonderful 'Tweet' on 22nd September from the Bulldogs Community @WBFCcommunity.

The improvement was 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 now clearly visible from the car park. Entry is free but all donations are gratefully accepted as the Garden is maintained by volunteers. (Donation Tube inside the entrance)




The Tweet reads " Spent a beautiful Spring day with our Wyndham Humanitarian Network youth group exploring @WyndhamLiving." Great to see you gathered under the entrance arch obviously enjoying your visit.
