Victoria State Rose Garden

WELCOME

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.


The Victoria State Rose Garden is still open every day to visit. 

Follow all Government restrictions. Check all Covid-19 restrictions before visiting.

The State Rose & Garden Show, which was to be held on 6th & 7th November, has been cancelled for 2021 as a result of Covid 19 restrictions. 

Please refer to Parks Vic Website below for the latest updates when planning a visit to Victoria State Rose Garden.   https://www.parks.vic.gov.au/places-to-see/sites/victoria-state-rose-garden


Some bright spots of colour captured the eye on a walk throughout the garden recently. There are lots of buds and flowers everywhere with the Heritage Border blooming well.
It is a beautiful, peaceful place for a walk or picnic now that restrictions are easing. 


These pictures are of Superb Fairy Wrens skittering around the base of the rose bushes foraging for insects when volunteers last pruned on 14th July this year, pre Covid lockdown 6.
