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.
Check out our Facebook page packed with beautiful up to the minute photos, interesting & useful information, tips for beating the heat and the chance to interact with other rose lovers.
From April to Sept 9.30 am till 5 pm. From October to March 9.30 till 6.00 pm. on most days of the year. Follow the link for info on Garden closures..
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 recent spell of hot Summer weather, lessening the abundance of flowers in some areas, but there are still wonderful photo opportunities in all directions. Pruning of the once flowering roses in the Heritage border, Weepers and the Festoons is well underway with the pruning nearing completion.Follow the link to see more photos and also visit us on Facebook Read more...
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.
