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.
ARE the roses still blooming?
YES is the answer to this frequently asked question but there will be less and less over the next month. The cold will cause the leaves to drop and inhibit flowering. Additionally we commence pruning on 8th June. With over 5000 roses to prune it will take quite some time.
Follow the link to see just a few of the many roses blooming beautifully.

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)
