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 every day and there are still some rose blooms to see.

However since deadheading stopped less flowers are being produced and with the onset of colder weather leaf drop is occurring which will make pruning much easier! Pruning starts on Wednesday 2nd June.

Please refer to Parks Vic Website below for the latest updates when planning a visit to Victoria State Rose Garden.   https://www.parks.vic.gov.au/places-to-see/sites/victoria-state-rose-garden

Hips are appearing in more beds as flowers cease.
Soft pink blooms on the HB Tripod.
There are still some bright splashes in the Heritage Border.
Flowers are more sparse in the Bud.
Pruning has commenced on the Festoons. Before View.
So much growth to remove. After view!
