WHAT'S HAPPENING NOW IN THE GARDEN?

The roses are still blooming well in all areas. Constant visitors can't stop taking photographs in front of magnificent blooms. 

The volunteers are working hard every Wednesday and Saturday morning deadheading the roses. This promotes the quick development of new flowers to keep the wonderful display of roses continually renewed.  (More Photos @ Garden Seasons)

 

Visitors are taking full advantage of the seating in the new Gazebo in the centre of the garden. 9/01/19

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.
