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.

What's Happening in the Garden Now?
Melbourne's "four seasons in one day" reputation has seen the roses cope with excessive heat, wild wind and lots of rain over the last few weeks. Dead heading is going on continually so there are roses blooming well in all areas. There are amazing photo opportunities everywhere. Come and enjoy the beautiful surrounds whilst taking photos or just smell the roses!
The members of the Williamstown Camera Club sent these beautiful photos from their recent visit.
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)
