    • Hi Venkat,

      Yes, you can get there by public transport. Catch a train from Melbourne on the Werribee Line and get off at Werribee Station. Then catch the number 439 bus, which takes you right up to the grounds of the gardens. The whole trip will take just over 1 hour.

      Have a great time at the Rose Gardens!
      Regards,

    • Hi Kate,

      Autumn is the best time to see the roses in full bloom, however they are still blooming right now.

      However, the roses will be less in bloom over the next month as the cold will cause the leaves to drop and inhibit flowering. Additionally they commence pruning on 8th June, but with over 5000 roses to prune it will take quite some time!

      Regards,
      Jess
