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.

WHAT'S HAPPENING IN THE GARDEN NOW?
10,000 people attended THE STATE ROSE & GARDEN SHOW one week ago.
Visitors wandered amongst the vibrant roses, took countless photos, ate, listened to garden experts, and went home loaded up with high quality plants and merchandise.
Such a well organised event with appreciative crowds pointing cameras in all directions looking for that perfect shot amongst the blooms.

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)
