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.


LOST PROPERTY - A LENS FOR A CAMERA WAS FOUND IN THE GARDEN ON WEDNESDAY 2nd AUGUST. Email contact:info@vicstaterosegarden.com.au



What's Happening Now In The Garden?

PRUNING is on track.

The volunteers started pruning on 14th June and after nine weeks of pruning, Petal A, the final Petal in the Tudor Rose is almost complete. 

The specialist areas of Weeping Standards, Tripods, & Festoons are also on track with pruning.  A smaller group work in the Leaf section at present but will be joined soon by those working in the Tudor Rose. The Bud is also half completed. The Heritage Border is also on track.

The volunteers will be working every Wednesday & Saturday till the end of August to complete the entire 5500 roses.

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.
