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 open to the public in line with the latest Covid-19 restrictions. 

For the latest Coronavirus, Covid-19 information.-- Please refer to Parks Vic Website below for the latest updates before planning a visit to both the Werribee Park  surrounds and the Victoria State Rose Garden.

At this stage a restriction on volunteering is in place for 6 more weeks (till mid-September)


It has been a rocky journey since pruning commenced on 3rd June only lasting till 7th July.

At this stage there is no volunteering allowed at the Victoria State Rose Garden with restrictions in place until mid September.

Thanks must go to the PARKS TEAM as always for supporting volunteers, maintaining the grounds and continuing on with pruning whilst the Supporters were, and are again in lockdown!

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.
