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?

The School Holiday break......

is the perfect time to call into the Rose Garden and have a wander amongst the beautiful blooms. The entire precinct is wonderful to visit with the Werribee Park Mansion adjoining the Rose Garden and The Werribee Open Range Zoo adjoining the Mansion grounds. So many attractions in one place!!!!

The volunteers will be working on through the holidays to ensure that the roses are always at their best. What a fabulous place to volunteer........ Enjoy the following photos taken at the latest State Rose & Garden Show. 

Volunteers hard at work as usual........

Victoria State Rose Garden Volunteers worked throughout the entire holiday period to keep the garden in top condition, ably supported by Parks staff.

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. (Donation Tube inside the entrance)
