Welcome

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.
Parole (D20)flowers were stunningly enormous.
More than 50 stalls were available to choose from.
VSRG volunteers conducted tours and answered questions.
The food was easy to locate gathered together in the one area.
Most selected lunch from the great selection of food vendors.
Other happy visitors self catered in style in a quiet corner.
Near the food caravans was a calm place for a coffee early in the morning.
 


It is worth the stroll to see the amazing variety of Heritage roses. (Gloire Lyonnaise.)
Festoons & climbers, Bloomfield Courage, Altissimo & Sympathie are intertwined. EF13

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. Weeping Standards and Festoons are putting on a spectacle.  The Heritage Border is a mass of colour. There are amazing photo opportunities everywhere. The difficulty is to stop taking photos and just smell the roses!

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.
