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 weather was perfect for the State Rose & Garden Show last Saturday and Sunday and the crowds rolled in. The cameras were snapping non stop as the roses vied for attention.

State Rose & Garden Show 2017

More than 16,000 people attended the 5th Annual State Rose and Garden Show in the Victoria State Rose Garden, Werribee South on the weekend! That is a LOT of rose lovers and a record number of people for this event !! Thanks to all those who came to admire and photograph the beautiful roses we tend. The City of Wyndham organised this 2 day event and special thanks to our VSRG volunteers who came to give tours of the garden, demos of dead heading, talk to visitors about roses, man the marquee and stand in the rose garden all day as garden keepers. Also for the hours of work that the V.S.R.G.S volunteers & Parks Vic garden team give all year to make this rose garden so beautiful.

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.
