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 still open every day to visit for exercise. Follow all Government restrictions. Follow Social Distancing rules. Check all Covid-19 restrictions before visiting.
