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 normally open every day from 9.30 till 5.00 pm and is free to visit. 

Please refer to Parks Vic Website below for the latest updates when planning a visit to Victoria State Rose Garden.

PRUNING NEWS

Pruning commenced early this year on May 4th as there is so much to catch up on. Covid caused a great backlog of work and damage to the roses. The garden has been more than half pruned and the volunteers are doing an amazing job. We would gladly welcome more hands to lighten the load.

Check out the up to the minute pictures, stories and informative videos on our Facebook Page.
