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.

We are back to work after the State Rose & garden Show. Drizzling rain can't stop the dedicated volunteers!!

Flowers are blooming everywhere!! Don't Miss Seeing It!!! 

The volunteers enjoyed a few days break after working hard all weekend at the State Rose & Garden Show.  The colourful panorama had visitors gasping and stopping suddenly to search for mobile phones as they entered the rose garden.  Enjoy these photos from last Sunday!

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.
