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.

Handmade quilt to be raffled at State Rose & Garden Show 9th & 10th November.
Claire Baxter has offered this magnificent quilt as the prize for a raffle to raise funds to help with the upkeep of the Victoria State Rose Garden. Tickets will be on sale at the STATE ROSE & GARDEN SHOW on 9th & !0th November.
As a keen gardener she’s a volunteer at the rose garden and has combined her other passion for Quilt making to create this beautiful quilt. Her inspiration came from many hours spent amongst the rose beds pruning and weeding while the Blue Wrens and other bird life feed along side. The quilt is approximately 2 metres by 2 metres and took 250 hours to make.

Formal Entrance for the Victoria State Rose Garden
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.
Via the donation tube when you visit, located just inside the main entrance.
