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 and interesting & useful information.
Birdlife is plentiful throughout the Garden.
What's Happening in the Garden Now?
May sees some lovely Autumn days with roses still blooming all around. The volunteers have stopped deadheading so expect some spent flowers mixed amongst the blooms. As the weather cools there will be a bit more leaf drop too. Because there are so many roses to prune we will commence pruning in June so come now to see the beautiful roses before we start.
The HERITAGE BORDER is putting on a wonderful, colourful display of Rose Hips so for an additional attraction come for a stroll and see the amazing variety of colours, shapes and sizes.
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)
