Victoria State Rose Garden

The Victoria State Rose Garden boasts over 5000 roses (covering about 6 acres), and is one of the premier tourist destinations in 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 Volunteers come from all walks of life and from all over Melbourne. The original group were trained in all aspects of rose culture by some of the most foremost rosarians in the country and are passing on their knowledge to each newcomer.
The aim: to produce healthy bushes and maximum blooms for all to enjoy.
