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.
It's Back - the State Rose and Garden Show
Sunday 16th November 2014 10 till 3 p.m.
The Victoria State Rose Garden was the perfect place to hold the first State Rose and Garden Show in 2013. Feedback from both visitors and participants was very positive. Put it in your diary now to see the roses at their best. Follow this link to see beautiful photos of last year's event....
What's Happening in the Garden Now?
SPRING is here and the architecture of the garden is on show in all areas. Neat pruned beds, avenues, festoons, arches, weepers are all showing different stages of colourful leaf growth. Birds are easily spotted as they dart through the branches.
Pruning was completed by the end of August. Well done to all the volunteers and a special thanks to Ron and the Parks team for all their assistance every Wednesday and Saturday morning. Read more & see current photos...
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)
