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.

On Wednesday 16th August President Lex Hodge was very pleased to introduce Jane Edmanson, Patron of the Victoria State Rose Garden, at morning tea.

She warmly congratulated all the volunteers on the amazing job that they continually do and posed the question "Where would communities be without volunteers?"
The volunteers enjoyed sharing time chatting, having a cuppa over lunch and talking about shared gardening passions with Jane. (More Photos)

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. 

Via cheque, posted to Post Office Box 2137,

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