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.

The State Rose and Garden Show will be back but this year over 2 big days.

Put it in your diary now so that you don't miss this event. Over 5000 roses blooming magnificently will be the perfect setting in which to learn helpful sustainable gardening tips from industry experts, purchase plants and tools, and talk to the 50+stallholders about all things gardening.
WHAT'S HAPPENING IN THE GARDEN NOW?
September sees the abundance of new colourful growth on all the bushes. It is also when the Heritage Border commences blooming. There are fewer jobs for the volunteers and more time to really study the results of the pruning.
We always welcome new volunteers so come any Wednesday or Saturday.
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)
