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 Now In The Garden?

Colourful New Growth is swallowing bare branches!!!! 

As we wait for the roses to bloom again it gives time to admire the structured architecture of the garden. Healthy, colourful foliage is smothering the bare branches everywhere. There are even a few flowers cheekily blooming.

(Click for more photos here and keep up with the latest)


The Standard Avenues look like neat sculptures after pruning. August.
Healthy growth on Perfume Perfection Standard Sept.
BEFORE Pruning. August.
AFTER Pruning. September.

Mid September see some cheeky flowers appearing. Warm weather will hasten this. We can't wait!!!!

Formal Entrance for the Victoria State Rose Garden

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

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.

3 Ways to Donate.............

Via the donation tube when you visit, located just inside the main entrance.

You can also donate online  via your bank, direct to our bank account.
