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 ROSES ARE BLOOMING IN All DIRECTIONS.
There has been a lot of warm weather and lots of wonderful sunshine. Perfect rose growing weather. The volunteers continue to dead head every Wednesday & Saturday to keep the flowers coming. There are still roses blooming in abundance so lots of photo opportunities everywhere.
Joan Broadstock is moving away from the area so chose to share her last volunteering day with the countless friends made over so many years of service.
Everyone enjoyed sharing a morning tea held in Joan's honour, whilst hearing from other longstanding members of the Supporters group of her numerous roles and achievements.
Joan Broadstock is one of the original members of the garden and has worked in all areas and been instrumental in developing it into the showcase gem it is today.

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