Morwell Centenary Rose Garden




Take a stroll around Morwell's beautiful Centenary Rose Garden that forms the western entrance to the town's business district. The Rose Garden is one of the finest in the southern hemisphere and is now listed in the World Federation of Rose Societies.

There are four acres of gardens, imaginatively landscaped with manicured lawns and over 100 beds in which are planted some 3000 roses, drawn from a professional selection of 400 varieties of recent hybrids and traditional favourites. Among these varieties are species, heritage, floribunda, tea roses, hybrid teas, miniatures, polyantha, rugosa, rambler and pillar roses. There is also a cascading rockery of David Austin modern shrub roses and a sunken garden planted with perfumed Delbard releases.

The garden features a number of significant structures that enhance and complement the roses. A central gazebo summer house supports several fine examples of Pierre De Ronsard underplanted with Iceberg shrubs. The Gazebo is surrounded by beds containing mass plantings, several of which have central towers. Upon these are trained such roses as Princess Margaret, Jean Galbraith and Handel. There are also tall decorative climbing frames, a pergola, several tunnel archways and dry wells containing well maintained tall standard weeping Crepuscules. Gravelled pathways meander throughout, leading to a magnificent tubular Arbour set within a sensory garden of perfumed Delbard shrub and climbing roses.

Adjacent roadway median strips and traffic roundabouts contain mass plantings of Tequila Sunrise, Royal Bassino, Europeana, Rosy Carpet, Heidesommer and Flower Carpet Gold.

To provide additional colour and interest in the garden throughout the year, plantings of spring bulbs, camellias, azaleas, annuals and perennials have been made within a park setting of established exotic and native trees.
