Victoria State Rose Garden (Werribee)




With over 5000 roses, the Victoria State Rose Garden is one of the tourist gems of Victoria. Hidden behind a screen of trees from the carpark of the Mansion at Werribee Park, it occupies about two and one half hectares (about 6 acres). It was awarded the International Garden of Excellence by the World Federation Of Rose Societies in 2003, the first rose garden outside Europe to receive this Award and the only one at that time cared for by volunteers

In plan, the design presents a stylised rose, with the traditional five-petalled Tudor Rose containing beds of HT and Floribunda roses forming the largest display area at the northern end of the site. Pathways act as a rose “stem”, leading from the Tudor Rose petals, to a “leaf” and a “rosebud”.

Opening Times
The best month is November when the spring flowerers are out as well as the main Tudor Rose, but there are plenty of blooms from mid-October to the end of June.

Free Admission

Review:


The Rose Garden has big shelters with tables about 200m from the entrance and there are seats to rest on inside the Gardens. There is also a water tap. The gardens are lovely to view and there are two earth mounds you can climb to get an overall perspective of the gardens. In general, kids wouldn't be that interested in the gardens and so it is best combined with a visit to the Werribee Mansion surrounds and / or the Werribee Open Range Zoo.
