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.

HAPPENINGS in the Garden.

The Autumn flush of modern roses is nearing its end as Winter weather is finally being felt. Pruning commenced on 11th June and will continue till the end of August.  Follow the link to see more photos of the garden now.........        Read more...

Scattered flowers amongst the spent blooms are what visitors see now when they visit . Over the coming weeks neat, pruned beds will start to outnumber those with flowers.
Decisions, decisions for the first day of pruning. There is always someone to ask for a second opinion as we work in large teams per bed.

Formal Entrance for the Victoria State Rose Garden

New Formal Entrance for Victoria State Rose Garden is clearly visible from the carpark.

The improvement is 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 clearly visible from the car park. Entry is free but all donations are gratefully accepted as the Garden is maintained by volunteers.
