Welcome to the Victoria State Rose Garden website. With over 5000 roses (covering about 5 hectares), the Victoria State Rose Garden is one of the tourist gems of Victoria.
ARE the roses still blooming? ARE there any flowers?
YES! YES! YES! is the answer to these frequently asked questions.

WHAT'S HAPPENING IN THE GARDEN NOW?
Once dead heading has finished and pruning is not due to commence until June, there is more time to fit in demonstrations amidst the other scheduled tasks.
On Wed. 20th April Rod Joyce of Ryset Tools gave a demonstration of tools suitable for use in both the Rose Garden and the home garden. Supporters were very appreciative of the presentation and the donation of some tools & tool sharpeners to the Garden. There was also an opportunity to try out the tools after the demo. SEE MORE at Garden Seasons.
There are so many things to see at the Garden at the moment. The HERITAGE BORDER is putting on a beautiful display of hips in so many different shapes, colours and sizes. Well worth a slow walk.
Bendigo Bank Branch Manager presents a defibrillator to VSRG Volunteers.
On Wednesday 30th March Dino Gulizia, Werribee Bendigo Bank Branch Manager, presented a defibrillator to President Joan Broadstock. He was thanked by the volunteers at the State Rose Garden for his contribution to the purchase of the defibrillator.
The volunteers had been looking to purchase a defibrillator unit for some time. They approached the Bendigo Bank who contributed $1800 towards this life-saving piece of equipment. Some training sessions have been held on its use, but the volunteers hope that this piece of equipment never needs to be used. SEE MORE

There are always such interesting stories and postings on our Facebook site. Interested rose buffs love to share their photos and offer information about their favourite roses.
Formal Entrance for the Victoria State Rose Garden
The improvement was long overdue with visitors previously unable to locate the garden entrance due to foliage and inadequate signage. It is now easy to see the large Metal Entrance Arch from the car park. It has State Rose Garden inscribed and a side panel showing the plan of the 4.5 hectare garden.
Entry is free but all donations are gratefully accepted as the Garden is maintained by volunteers. (Donation Tube inside the entrance)
