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.
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.

I went to the festival over the weekend for the first time. It was amazing! I'll certainly go again.

Well done to all!!! Eric
Full Bloom at the Rose and Garden Show
Last weekend Werribee put on an amazing display at the Rose and Garden Show. The Rose Garden looked glorious and team of volunteers from the Rose Garden should be commended for the work they do. The program of quality presenters, the channel 7 broadcasts on Friday night and the perfect weather combined with to ensure record numbers.
At the event the team from Werribee Visitor Information Centre spoke to over 1200 people from all over Victoria and from some exotic locations such as Mauritius.

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)
