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.

Tuscan Sun, a floribunda rose, is certainly a must for your garden. This is one head of flowers!!! Count the different colours!!!

WHAT'S HAPPENING NOW IN THE GARDEN?

Roses are still blooming throughout the garden and visitors are continuing to find many beautiful photo opportunities as they stroll around the peaceful surroundings. 

Wednesday 10th April is the Last day of deadheading  and the roses will then gradually slow down flowering as the spent blooms are left on the bushes and hips start forming. (Read about the process here.) There will still be some flowers blooming throughout the next few months  (More Photos @ Garden Seasons)

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.
